PAT Test Certificate by TRAC Aircon

Conforming to PAT test certificate regulations will help you to ensure that the portable appliances in your business are safe and help you avoid violations. PAT testing legislation was put into effect to ensure that all companies conform to the Health and Safety at Work Act of 11974, Electricity at Work Regulations of 1989, Provision and Use of Work Regulations of 1998 and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations of 1999.

PAT test certificate law requires that all landlords, employers and even self-employed individuals make sure that their portable electrical appliances are safe and suitable and used for the purposes intended. These appliances should always be maintained properly and remain in good working order.

The guidelines are designed to make certain that this equipment is kept protected and preserved through regular maintenance as well as inspections and periodic testing. Damage and fault can occur with all electrical equipment used which makes it essential that these items are tested regularly for safety.

What is PAT testing and What are its benefits?

The PAT test certification ensures your portable applications have undergone portable appliance testing, ensuring safety in the workplace and residential premises. The PAT test certificate can help by:

  • Guaranteeing Employee and household safety by reducing the risk of electrical accidents and injuries.
  • Comply with the latest Health and Safety at Work Act (1974) and Electricity at Work Regulations (1989).
  • Minimise downtime of operations with possible equipment failures.
  • Reduce insurance costs as many insurance companies offer lower premiums for businesses with PAT test certificates up to date.

PAT testing
  • Can I do my own PAT test certificate?

As long as you have adequate training in how to perform the test, you can legally carry your own PAT test certificate, but it is not recommended to do so. You may also need the equipment to test equipment malfunction.

  • What will fail a PAT test?

There are a few reasons why electrical equipment may fail a PAT test, including casing damaged or cracked, exposed parts, cable or plug damaged, equipment that won't power on, etc. In some cases, the equipment can be repaired and re-tested so you can have the chance to get the PAT test certificate for that equipment.

  • Is it a legal requirement to carry a PAT test certificate for appliances?

Technically it is not mandatory to carry the PAT test certificate for every appliance, however, the law requires that employers, landlords and self-employed people ensure PEA (portable electrical appliance) safety through regular PAT testing and the PAT test certificate is the proof of compliance.
