Alongside our general medical equipment testing services, we can provide you with comprehensive, thorough and accurate PAT testing to make sure that all portable appliances are in full working order and functioning as they should be. This is a service that should be carried out on a regular basis to ensure that all equipment is kept safe.
PAT stands for portable appliance testing, and can be applies to any electrical device which can be moved and is operated using a standard three-pin plug. In a hospital, surgery, clinic or any other medical premises, there will usually be a high number of these kinds of appliances which need to be checked regularly. Safety is of the utmost important in settings such as these, and PAT testing can contribute towards creating a safer, secure environment for staff and patients.
Appliances such as fans, heaters and kettles should be checked at least once a year to make sure there are no electrical faults, as these are classed as high risk appliances due to their frequency of use and the fact that they are often moved around. Computers and printers are classed as lower risk and should be checked around every three years to keep them as safe as possible. There are no hard and fast rules about how often you should get appliances PAT tested, but regular checking is strongly recommended to help you minimise the risk of accidents and avoid potential legal issues further down the line.
