Thread Name: Tech: PAT testing
Subject: RE: Tech: PAT testing
Hiya Stage Tech.

I don't think anybody on this thread has suggested it is expensive - just questioned the need for it and, in my case, expressed mild (very mild, mind) annoyance at the fact that I, like others on the thread, am more than capable, largely due to my education and day job, of carrying out the tests myself yet still need to jump through the hoop.

In my case, an afternoon on 't internet and 25 quid split between 8 of us is a small price to pay to shut the mouths of people who may get excited about such things.

Also; I should point out that the scenario you suggest would be covered by our public liability insurance. The PAT (point taken, Nigel) is simply to prevent us having pointless arguments with venue owners.
