The official name for the process of PAT testing is “in-service inspection & testing of electrical equipment. Health and safety regulations dictate the regular testing of all electrical appliances in order to declare them safe; to prevent any harm coming to staff, patients and visitors. It often comes as a shock to people when they discover that portable appliances present significant danger if they are not subject to periodic testing. There are hundreds of accidents on a yearly basis as a result of faulty and unsafe appliances. These accidents are entirely preventable by implementing professional Medical Equipment Calibration PAT testing.
Low and High-risk Portable Appliances
A portable appliance is any electrical device that is not fixed and wired but can be moved to any location; as well as being in operation by a basic three pin plug. Every surgery and medical establishment has a range of portable appliances on the premises, that are either low or high-risk items. We class everyday items such as kettles, microwaves, fans, toasters and hoovers as high-risk appliances. It is important to make sure that these items receive testing every 12 months.
Devices such as computers, monitors and printers present a lower risk, and the recommendation from the government is that they are subject to testing every 3 to 5 years. It is, however, the preference of many that they are tested annually along with high-risk appliances for complete peace of mind.
