Code of practice
In accordance with the Electricity at Work Regulations (1989), any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury must be maintained in a safe condition.
PAT testing is an expected part of every employer’s safety environment. There are a number of things to consider when deciding on the frequency of PAT testing. These are covered in the 5th Edition of the IET Code of Practice risk assessment. There are 8 factors you should take into account to determine the test interval, which should be chosen, so far as reasonably practicable, to prevent danger.
