Portable appliance testing

Seaward says the full-colour, 40-page ‘Guide To Portable Appliance Testing’ provides essential reading for all those with a responsibility for ensuring the safe operation of electrical equipment in the workplace, as well as those involved in conducting tests, or providing PAT services.

The responsibilities of employers, manufacturers, importers, hirers and maintainers are each considered in the booklet, with full reference to the legal requirements to test, and the implications of the Electricity At Work Regulations (EAWR 1989).

In keeping with the latest IET advice, special sections are also included on competency to test, frequency of testing, record keeping and interpretation of results.

Free copies of Seaward’s ‘A Guide to Portable Appliance Testing’ can be requested from the Seaward sales office; e-mail: [email protected]; tel: 0191 586 3511; or download it from:
