The Need for In-Service Inspection & Testing
Electric shock can seriously injure or kill. Therefore, all electrical systems and equipment should be maintained if danger would otherwise arise. Therefore, regular inspection of equipment is an essential part of any preventive programme.
Those With Special Interest
Laws such as the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations, and the Electricity at Work Regulations, requires that employers ensure, for example, the safety of employees by both providing equipment suitable for the job, and that it is electrically safe for continued use in its intended environment. In-Service Inspection & Testing (PAT) is a way to meet this obligation.
The 'Repairing Standard' of the Housing (Scotland) Act requires that a private landlord ensures that the electrical appliances, electrical heating and hot water systems they provide be in a reasonable state of repair and working order.
