Eleksafe will carry our portable appliance testing for any business large, small or home business (SME).
PAT doesn’t just include truly portable equipment; the scope is wider. It includes everything that is attached to the electrical wiring system. A drinks machine, for example, is classed as a ‘portable appliance’ as is a freezer cabinet or photocopier.
The groupings used by the IET (the Institute of Engineering & Technology) include ‘stationary’, ‘IT’, ‘moveable’, ‘portable’ and ‘handheld’ – all are dealt with by PAT.
In an office, for example, it’s typical for each and every worker to have approximately seven portable appliances around them; from computers, to printers, faxes and fans. A computer, for example, can mean three or four tests and many people mistakenly count this as just one.
