Compliance for Businesses and Employers

Regular PAT testing will help you ensure compliance with the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, which requires that any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury is maintained in a safe condition.
As a business and employer, you have a duty to prevent any harm from coming to your employees and customers. A PAT test is one of the ways that you can comply with this obligation. Failure to implement a programme of regular appliance testing can also have implications for your insurance policy should an electrical-related injury claim be made.
Insurance companies assume that when giving insurance coverage to a business, the owners of that business are complying with all regulations necessary. An insurance company may reduce, delay, or even refuse to pay on a claim for damage if an appliance that has not been tested has caused the damage.
Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 – Regulation 4 (2):
‘As may be necessary to prevent danger all systems shall be maintained so as to prevent so far as is reasonably practicable such danger.’
Furthermore, in the Health & Safety At Work Act 1974, all employers have a legal duty to provide safe plant and equipment and every employer must ensure that equipment must be maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order, and in good repair.
Compliance for Landlords
Pat testing South Yorkshire
Anyone who lets residential accommodation as a business activity (such as houses, flats and bedsits, holiday homes, caravans, and boats) and is acting as Landlord, is required by law to ensure the equipment they supply as part of the tenancy is safe. This can be done easily through our PAT testing service for landlords.
As a landlord, you are responsible for preventing harm to your tenants from the electrical appliances that you supply. Portable appliance testing is widely regarded as being the best way of complying with this obligation. Without a programme of planned appliance testing and maintenance, you could be legally liable for damages resulting from your untested appliances.
This covers all portable appliances that you supply, including:
Compliance for Landlords
Additionally, the Housing Act 2004 (England and Wales) provides for a safe and healthy environment for any potential occupiers or visitors. From an electrical perspective, this includes portable electric equipment. The condition of associated leads and plugs of portable appliances should also be considered in the assessment if they are provided as part of a rented dwelling.
Guidance from Communities and Local Government (CLG) indicates that when accommodation is re-let, the electrical appliances will be classed as being supplied to that tenant for the first time and should therefore be re-checked.
Mandatory since 1 January 1997, the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994 further state that all electrical appliances supplied with let accommodation must be safe. This applies to both new and second-hand appliances and covers all electrical items supplied for the intended use of the Tenant. The only sure method of ensuring that these appliances are safe is to have them tested by a trained competent person using the appropriate calibrated portable appliance testing equipment.
