Summary of PAT Testing Services from PASSfm

PAT Testing is an essential aspect of your company's health & safety policy to ensure that your staff aren't harmed by faulty electrical equipment within your business premises. PAT Testing should be performed regularly to protect your employees and visitors to the workplace. PAT Testing should be carried out in accordance with the IET "Code of Practice for In-service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment (4th Edition)".

What is involved in PAT Testing Services?

  • User check
    The user check is a vital safety precaution. Many faults can be determined by a visual inspection. The user is the person most familiar with the equipment and may be in the best position to know whether it is in a safe condition and working properly. No record need be made of the user check unless some aspect of the equipment is unsatisfactory. User checks should be based on a risk assessment, but guidance is normally weekly or before use.
  • Formal visual Inspection
    Only a person competent to do so should carry out a formal visual inspection. The results of a formal visual inspection should be recorded on a suitable form.
  • Combined Inspections and PAT testing
    Only a person competent to do so should carry out Combined Inspection and Testing. The results should be recorded on a suitable form. In-services testing requires:
    • An earth continuity test on Class 1 equipment
    • Insulation resistance testing, if applicable, or protective conductor current/touch current test or substitute/alternative leakage test
    • Functional checks
