Increasingly the insurance industry is requiring that PAT Testing is carried out prior to the renewal of an insurance policy. This is because over 1,000 work place accidents involving electric shocks are reported to the Health & Safety Executive each year, many of which were fatal. Most of the reported accidents involve portable appliances.
The Electricity at Work Regulations place a legal responsibility on employers and self-employed persons to take reasonable practical steps to ensure no danger results from the use of any electrical appliances. This requires the introduction of a systematic and regular programmed schedule of maintenance, inspection and testing. However, there is no requirement to test appliances every year.
