Pat Testing Checklist

Ensuring the safety and compliance of your portable electrical appliances is paramount. Our rigorous process begins with establishing a comprehensive register, cataloguing every piece of portable electrical equipment you have. This methodical approach is fundamental to managing the integrity of your electrical tools effectively. We conduct thorough visual inspections as part of our protocol, employing skilled portable appliance testers who follow a detailed PAT testing checklist. These visual checks are essential in the early detection of potential risks that could compromise safety or efficiency.

Each piece of equipment is assessed by an experienced duty holder, specifically trained in electrical safety. This role is vital in overseeing the adherence to standard practices and regulatory requirements. Our PAT testing frequency aligns with the latest IEE guidelines, ensuring that every portable appliance test (PAT test) we carry out meets these stringent standards. We meticulously document each pat test cost and outcome in formal records, providing transparency and accountability.

Regular tests and reviews are scheduled to ensure ongoing compliance and safety. By incorporating both pat tests and visual inspection routines performed by a certified portable appliance tester, we guarantee a safe working environment. Additionally, upon completion, a pat test certificate is issued for each item tested, affirming its safety compliance. Through this comprehensive approach—employing a skilled PAT tester, and adhering to best practices for visual inspection and PAT tests—we ensure not only operational efficiency but also the highest level of safety for your portable electrical appliances.

Here's our step-by-step process for initiating a successful inspection, testing and maintenance schedule:

  • Register Setup: Establish a register, covering all electrical tools, equipment and appliances.

  • Visual Inspection: Carry out regular visual inspections at intervals determined by your risk assessment.

  • Duty Holder: Nominate a 'duty holder' with responsibility for the safety of electrical equipment - and ensure ‘duty holder' is properly trained.
  • Testing Frequency: Determine the frequency of formal testing in consultation with IEE recommendations, and commit as an organisation to a regular inspection and testing programme.

  • Regular Testing: Ensure tests are carried out in keeping with the frequency of testing plan, using diary reminders and regular, documented Health and Safety meetings.

  • Record Keeping: Establish a formal record keeping system, and check it at regular intervals using diary reminders.

  • Re-test Schedule: Determine a re-test schedule well in advance.

  • Annual Review: Once a year, review and update all Health and Safety documents and processes.
