Free updated PAT Test guide available

Seaward have updated their popular free guide to portable appliance testing. The latest version of the guide has been fully updated in line with the HSE guide to ‘Maintaining portable electrical equipment’ (HSG107, 3rd edition, HSE, 2013) and the IET Code of Practice for In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment. It has been designed to provide a handy practical guide to all aspects of PAT testing.

The informative, full colour, 40 page booklet 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 updated version of the guide takes into account fundamental changes to the latest IET advice on PAT testing, including a new section on determining inspection and test intervals using risk assessment procedures advised by the IET and the Health and Safety Executive.
