The electrical pat testing is performed two or three times in a year. Apart from the usual testing, the checking procedures are also conducted over the electrical gadgets and appliances.

If a company does not want to hire the services of a PAT engineer, then one of its senior officers can learn the testing procedure through a short term course and ensure the safety of the appliances on a regular basis.
