Portable Appliance Testing, more
commonly known as “PAT”, “PAT Inspection”, and “PAT TESTING”, is the term used
to describe process of the periodical in-service inspection and testing of electrical
appliances and equipment, to ensure that they are safe to use.
Here, at B Safe Safety, PAT is
carried out by qualified engineers, trained to perform not only the electrical
test, but to conduct a visual examination of every equipment as well as provide
the risk assessment for the environment of which the tool is going to be used
It is important for all of these
three parameters to be conducted during the PAT test, (electrical testing,
visual testing, risk assessment).
tests: earth resistance test, earth continuity test,
insulation resistance test, leakage test, polarity check, RCDs / ELCBs / Safety
tests: it is essential part of the PAT
process, as some electrical safety defects cannot be detected with electrical testing
alone, checking the cable, the wires, and the plug for any signs of damage and
none compliance is carried out at every PAT session.
assessment: the engineers carrying out the
PAT process will assess both the equipment and the site for any potential
risks, to ensure that the equipment is within the appropriate environment
according to the manufacturer specifications, as well as the proper tests are
conducted for each specific equipment (in a grinder, a leakage current test
would power up the appliance, hence an insulation resistance test would be a
the employers’ responsibility to ensure the safety of electrical equipment
present at the site, so long that those equipment are accessible to the
employees or the public, PAT is done to help prevent accidents as well as avoid
any unnecessary liability in case of one.
PAT records ready at the site is a great way to ensure that the quality
assurance, HSE requirements, and insurance documents are complied with.
PAT for all critical electrical equipment will ensure the safety of the workers
and the public, as well as the employer and business owner.
appliance that has a cord and a plug that is intended to connect to a wall
socket or generator requires PAT testing.
appliance is cordless, the tool itself shall not have a PAT test, however,
their battery chargers that plugs into the wall would require a PAT test.
means that all electrical equipment should be tested, PAT is done to ensure the
safety of the equipment for the user, as electrical shock from any source could
completion of the PAT test, an initial test report will be issued, providing
detailed information for all appliances tested, as well as the tests performed,
the result obtained, and the final conclusion from the PAT test, whether the
equipment is safe to use or not.
a safety certificate will be issued carrying the B Safe Safety stamp, our
certificates and initial reports are made to be easy to understand, simplicity
and accuracy are our aim when it comes to certification and documentation.
Safety is an authorized body for analysis, inspection, and certification
services in UAE.
