PAT testing:

PAT stands for portable appliance testing. Generally, this term is used to describe the portable electrical appliances that are used to examine electrical faults. The correct term is “In-service Inspection & Testing of Electrical Equipment” (as defined by IET/IEE and City and Guilds). Many electrical safety defects can be detected by visual examination, but it is essential to confirm it by testing alone. A user check method may serve the purpose. However, formal visual checking and testing by a competent person in a defined schedule is essential for keeping the electrical system safe. Requirement of tests an appliance needs will depend on the type of appliance and electrical class. It also depends on the risk assessment conducted by a trained technician.

Benefits of PAT:

Electrical appliances are the veins & arteries for getting electricity from the mains through flexible, plug & switches. So, to get electricity in our homes it is essential to keep the supply chain fault-less. To keep it fault-less the system needs to be checked by competent persons periodically. Here lies the importance of PAT. It has many benefits, besides keeping the electrical systems fault-less PAT also saves human lives.

Now, let us look into the following:

  • In case of an –undented fault in an electrical line there is always a chance for an accident. Electrical shock may be the resultant effect.
  • Again, the shock may or may not be fatal, If the shock is severe it may cause burning and/or death.
  • Short circuiting in electrical system may cause devastated fire.
    It is a pity that many users  try to mend electrical fault without considering the probable damages.
  • On the other hand, a good maintenance work with competent persons remove un-certainty over safety issues.
  • PAT will ensure that the whole electrical system related to the concerned appliance(s) is diagnosed and the faults ate removed.
  • That means PAT will remove probability of electrical shock and mortality.


Reducing the possibility of electrical shock and mortality is the biggest benefit of PAT.

Due to our inadequate knowledge we neglect PAT testing and carry out maintenance of our appliances by ourselves. This negligence leads to accident and sometimes it causes death and fire. PAT testing detects invisible electrical faults which may not be detected otherwise. These invisible defects in electrical appliances may, sometimes, cause fatal accidents.

Major benefits of PAT testing:

Reduces the risk
PAT testing if done by a competent person and in a well-defined frequency will keep the appliances healthy and thereby reduces the risk of accident. Yes, no checking can ensure foolproof guarantee for safety. But, if it is done sincerely it reduces the risk of accident phenomenally. It also reduces the risk of fire hazard.

Reduces the chance of accidents
Faulty electrical connection causes 20 times more fatal accidents compared to other types of accidents. PAT testing reduces the causes of such accidents.

PAT helps us to comply legal requirements

  • Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations
  • Occupational Health & Safety Regulations
  • Health & Safety at Work Act
  • The Electricity at Work Regulations (EAW)
  • Provisions & Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER)

PAT helps to protect  insurance
Your Insurance Company will demand you to comply with all the Health and Safety requirements as per the legal requirements; If the guidelines are not met properly then it will mean that the electrical system is safe. In that situation the Insurance Company may deem the policy to be void. Therefore, regular PAT testing and taking proper action as per PAT finding will help to comply with Insurance Policy requirement. This, then, will prevent the Insurance company from rejecting your Insurance claim.

Aziz is wonderfully professional and incredibly pleasant. We had a big nasty job to do replacing all the wiring in the house and he made sure that whatever he had to do, we were comfortable and not left without power to important appliances. He will genuinely go out of his way to make your life easier. He’s also very communicative and happy to explain everything he’s doing and why, which is a great comfort. I don’t know why I’d ever use another electrician.

Fantastic emergency response in the middle of the night. He reassured me that he would be able to get the power back on in no time, listened to my feedback on what happened and acted swiftly accordingly. Would use again!!
