It’s that time again. Our yearly Portable Appliance Test, or PAT test, was carried out yesterday. The PAT test ensures none of our equipment may be dangerous to work with, and it is all inside the health and safety guidelines.
We called specialist PAT testers to the office, the device they use determines whether or not the equipment plugged into it is safe for use or not. The piece of equipment would then get a pass or fail sticker. The test includes both a visual and more in-depth check, gathering information on earth continuity, lead polarity and insulation resistance checks.
