Check your Electrical Appliances

Do a Portable Appliance Test

The Portable Appliance Test (PAT) is an important verification tool. The whole process is known as "in-service inspection and testing of electrical equipment."  This routine check of all electrical appliances ensures that all your electrical installations meet the strictest safety requirements!


The PAT test complies with all legal requirements and may even qualify you for a discount on your insurance premiums, as it proves how seriously you take safety issues. In the event of any damages claims, your PAT certificate proves that your electrical appliances have been tested and certified.


PAT testing includes:

  • visual inspections
  • earth-bond tests
  • insulation-resistance tests
  • flash testing
  • load tests
  • earth-leakage test
  • functional checks


Non-compliance with PAT standards can lead to severe punishments for corporations and landlords, ranging from fines to imprisonment. ROHSS therefore recommend that all relevant portable appliances are tested regularly, periodicity can be determined on a risk basis and is dependant on type of equipment and the working environment.


All equipment is inspected, tested and fitted with a unique identification bar code and tested label, a full detailed report is provided for all equipment tested.


Only got a few items to be tested, save money and bring them to The PAT Clinic.
