|Book Details :|
The introduction of The Electricity at Work Regulations (EAWR) 1989 prompted, among many other things, a rush to inspect and test portable appliances.
The Regulations do not require such inspecting and testing, nor do they specifically mention portable appliances.
They do, however, require any electrical system to be constructed, maintained and used in such a manner as to prevent danger, and in consequence inspection and testing of systems (portable appliances are systems) is needed in order to determine if maintenance is required.
All electrical equipment connected to the fixed wiring of an installation will need attention, not just portable appliances. I have however left the title of this PAT Portable Appliance Testing book as PAT:
Portable Appliance Testing as such words are now indelibly imprinted on our minds, even though it should read ‘Inspection and Testing of In-service Electrical Equipment’.
The PAT Portable Appliance Testing book is intended for those who need be involved in this inspection and testing process, either as a business venture or as an ‘in-house’ procedure to conform with the EAWR.
It is also a useful reference document for anyone embarking on a City & Guilds 2377 course.
This new edition has been updated in line with the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations and the 3rd edition of the Code of Practice for In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment.
