Portable Appliance Testing or PAT testing as it is known is an essential part of any Health & Safety Policy

A portable appliance is simply anything with a plug on it. From computer power supplies, computer leads, fax machines in fact all your office equipment that you plug in.

Not forgetting 110v power tools used on sites right through to the machinery on the factory floor that has industrial round plugs on.

Check to see how many portable appliances you have. Remember anything connected to an electricity supply via a plug would be considered to be a portable appliance.
