Company owners and landlords have a legal duty to ensure that their tenants and staff can enjoy living and working in a safe, secure environment, and that they are not put at risk of injuries and accidents. Electrical safety is an important aspect of this.
A large proportion of electrical accidents involve portable devices such as hairdryers, kettles, toasters, power tools and heaters. As these items tend to be used and moved around frequently, they are particularly susceptible to wear and tear, which means they can develop dangerous faults. It is crucial to consider these types of appliances when devising a suitable safety strategy for your building.
Portable appliance testing (PAT) involves inspecting, testing and checking portable electrical appliances to make sure they are safe. In many cases a visual inspection can quickly identify faults, but professional testing can uncover any hidden problems and potentially prevent injuries. These tests are not a legal requirement, but PAT certification can provide you with legal protection in the event of any future problems, enabling you to prove that you took reasonable steps to keep your premises safe.
