The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 require that any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury is maintained in a safe condition. However, the Regulations do not specify how frequently.
The frequency of inspecting and testing electrical appliances depends on the type of equipment and the environment that the equipment is used. A good example of the frequency of which an item should be inspected: A power drill that is used daily on a construction site will need checking more often than a Kettle in a hotel room.
After completed testing of all your items you will receive a report, including:
- Detailed appliance register including result and location
- Failed register
- Display certificate
- Email with test results if required
- Pass/Fail Label applied to each appliance
- Commercial businesses
- Industrial businesses
- Retail environments
- Rental properties
- Educational institutes, schools, colleges, universities etc
- Health care providers
- Any environment accessible to the public

There is a legal requirement to keep any electrical items that have the potential to cause injury maintained to a safe standard. PAT Testing ensures you are taking steps to met this legal requirement.
The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 require that any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury is maintained in a safe condition and The Health & Safety at Work Act (1974) places such an obligation in the following circumstances:
- Where appliances are used by employees
- Where the general public may use appliances in establishments such as hospitals, schools, colleges, hotels, shops, universities etc
- Where appliances are repaired
- Where appliances are supplied or hired
As an Employer or business owner you need to fulfil your obligations with your Insurance. PAT Testing might not be necessary to prove your legal compliance at the time you take out your insurance policy, but you may need to produce records to prove your electrical diligence if you ever need to make a claim.
