PAT stands for Portable Appliance Testing and describes the regular visual inspection and testing of electrical devices such as computers, kettles, extension cords and lamps to determine their safety. Unsafe devices run the risk of electrical shock, burns and fire, among other risks, and should be routinely inspected to identify any issues before they occur. Only a competent engineer can carry out PAT inspections, which are regulated by the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005. While regular PAT inspections are recommended for every household, they are a legal requirement for landlords who supply electrical devices in rented accommodation. Our experienced team is certified to undertake PAT inspections and provide safety advice for the use of electrical devices in the home.
