Portable Appliance Testing - The Facts 

The Health & safety Executive states that 25% of all electrical accidents involve portable appliances. The Electricity At Work Regulations place a legal responsibility on employer, employees and self-employed persons to comply with the provisions of the regulations and take reasonable practicable steps to ensure that no danger results from the use of such equipment.

This in effect requires the implementation of a systematic and regular program of maintenance, inspection and testing.

 

The Health & Safety At Work Act (1974) places such an obligation in the following circumstances:

bullet

Where appliances are used by employees

bullet

Where the public may use appliances in establishments such as hospitals, schools, hotels, shops etc.

bullet

Where appliances are supplied or hired

bullet

Where appliances are repaired or service
