Having your workplace electrical appliances regularly checked and tagged is a legal requirement.
Moreover, maintaining the integrity of your mains and having an understanding of how much power your appliances use is also just good practice.
Types of tests that you may need to perform are those related to current leakage and insulation (500v and 250 v). Other applications which testers can be used for include analysing class one and two equipment, extension leads, safety switches and your overall mains power supply.
But no matter what the test is you’re performing, you need to guarantee that your portable electrical appliance testing equipment (also known as PAT testers) are accurate and working reliably in the first place.
To ensure this, you need to have your portable electrical appliance testers calibrated. We advise that you have it done annually, which is typically in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
