Employers are required to ensure that all of the electrical equipment that employees use is safe and in good condition. This one comes under the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 which simply tells you that you must ensure that the electrical equipment – basically anything that has a plug attached to it – is safe.
The net result is that more businesses are calling for PAT testing, which is putting some strain on Facilities Management Companies and Electrical Contractors who are quoting for their primary services are now also being asked to undertake PAT testing as a bolt on as well.
