Thread Name: Tech: PAT testing
Subject: RE: Tech: PAT testing
If anyone would care to go on the Health and Safety Executive website and search for Portable Appliance Testing they will find a poster that HSE themselves produce that states categorically that it is a myth that PAT is a legislative requirement. It does state that an employer is required to carry out Risk Assessments and take appropriate actions. After many years of working in Facilities Management and numerous "discussions" with companies that provide PAT and Insurance reps who insisted that it was law to have such testing I have lost count of the hours I've wasted on this subject.
