What do you need to know about PAT - Portable Appliance Testing?
PAT is the examination process of electrical appliances and equipment which measures how safe they are to use. While a lot of defects can be located through visual examination, a number of issues can only be assessed through thorough testing.
A qualified engineer will be able to carry out these tests on your behalf. It would be dangerous for anyone untrained to attempt to carry out any kind of electrical maintenance work and so Plentific strongly recommends that you use a local professional.
You can ascertain the engineer’s qualifications and experience by finding out if they are registered with the NICEIC. Members of the National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting body are required to adhere to a strict code of conduct and are verified to have been qualified to carry out the maintenance checks.
You also want to ensure that you choose a professional that is covered by Public Liability Insurance. This protects your money and property and you can ask the tradesman for this before you begin any work.
An experienced professional should be able to provide all of this information. If they cannot, or are hesitant to do so, it would be wise to continue your search.
