Check your appliances for any signs of defect, such as loose or frayed wiring – replace or have a professional electrician service any faulty equipment immediately. Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) should also be undertaken annually to ensure that all your electrical equipment is in good working order.
It is recommended by the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 that electrical safety testing (PAT) and visual inspection of all mains-powered electrical portable appliances and associated cables, chargers, transformers and plugs should take place at appropriate intervals. Items tested should carry the appropriate test labels to identify those that may not have been tested and the next test date.
