Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) is a standard procedure commonly completed in workplaces, educational institutions, and similar settings where electrical devices are utilised. Its primary aim is to guarantee the safety of electrical appliances, mitigating the risk of electric shock or fire hazards.

During PAT, professionals known as “PAT testers” conduct a thorough examination and assessment of electrical appliances to ensure their safety. This process encompasses:

  1. Visual Inspection: A detailed visual examination of the appliance is conducted to identify any visible signs of damage, wear, or defects. Key components such as the power cord, plug, casing, and other visible parts are scrutinised for indications of deterioration.
  2. Electrical Testing: Specialised testing equipment is used to evaluate the electrical safety of the appliance.
  3. Functional Testing: When necessary, functional tests are conducted to verify that the appliance functions correctly and safely.

Following these assessments, the PAT tester typically attaches a label or tag to the appliance, signifying its successful inspection and testing. Appliances that fail PAT may undergo repairs or be removed from service to prevent potential hazards.

Regular PAT testing is often mandated by regulations and standards to uphold workplace safety and ensure compliance with electrical safety protocols. The frequency of testing varies based on factors such as the appliance type, its intended application, and the operating environment.
