The Law and Portable appliance testing.

There are 4 pieces of legislation that are directly applicable to PAT Testing (or the inspection and testing of in-service electrical equipment). These laws are:

The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974
This law applies to employers and employees in all workplaces. It places "a duty of care" on all to ensure that the workplace is safe for themselves and for others. A PAT Test will ensure compliance with regards to electrical appliances where this law is concerned.

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999
This law applies to employers. It is in place to ensure that the above law (HSAW) can be effectively complied with. This law states that employers must carry out a risk assessment to ensure that employees (and those not in his/her employ) are not subjected to danger. PAT Testing should be included as part of this risk assessment.

The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998
This law applies to employers. It ensures that work equipment is constructed and/or installed in a manner that is suitable for safe use. Again, a PAT Test will ensure compliance.

The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989
This is the most important law in regards to PAT Testing. Regulation 16 of this legislation deals with "electrical systems" and "duty holders". For the purpose of the law an electrical system is anything that generates, stores, transmits or uses electricity and a duty holder is anyone (employer, employee, self-employed person, etc) who has 'control' of an electrical system. This means anyone who designs, installs, works with or maintains anything electrical is a duty holder. The Electricity at Work Regulations require that electrical systems be maintained in a condition so as to not cause danger. This must be carried out no matter the cost, time or hassle involved. PAT Testing has become the recognised method of complying with this law. It should also be noted that the law dictates that this (PAT Testing) is carried out by a competent person.

We can see that the combination of these laws apply to all electrical equipment used in, or associated with, places of work. The laws apply to both employers and employees. Employees should make sure that they are using electrical equipment safely and in the manner that they were intended for. They should also perform visual checks on equipment and report faults to their employers. Employers should ensure that the equipment in their workplace is safe for all to use. The most convenient and cost effective way to comply with this is to have the electrical equipment PAT Tested. PAT Testing will ensure that appliances are safe for the use that they were intended and a PAT Test Register along with a PAT Test Certificate will prove compliance.
