Portable Appliance Testing - The Process
Formal Visual Inspection
An inspection of the appliance will help to identify any physical abnormalities. Whereas some may be put down to wear and tear and don’t affect the safety or functioning of the appliance, some could be an accident waiting to happen.
On average, 90% of appliances which fail a PAT Test do so because of a good Formal Visual Inspection.
The Electrical Tests
Once equipment has passed a Formal Visual Inspection it can be tested for electrical safety. This normally involves putting the equipment through a series of electrical tests using known currents and voltages, and taking test results.
These results are compared to known values to determine whether specific safety features built into the equipment will perform if there is a fault situation. The appliance can then be labelled with a pass or fail sticker. The electrical readings obtained will form part of your report.
