Welcome to PATS manawatu

What is this "Pat" testing?

PATS is Portable Appliance Testing Service.

It is a system which is designed to ensure that all electrical equipment in the workplace is safe and for the legislation requirements of OSH.

The real name is actually "The In Service Safety Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment" but that doesn't roll off the tongue as easily as PATS. The "Electrical equipment" refered to includes Portable but covers Hand-Held, Stationary, Moveable, Transportable and Built in as well. The Whats, Hows and Whys of pat testing are laid down in the Australian/New Zealand Standard  for In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment AS/NZS 3760:2003 . You can usually tell if a business has had its appliances pat tested by little stickers, often green, on all their equipment or plugtops.

So what's PATS?

Pats was set up in 2010 to help you meet your legal and moral obligations as simply and cost effectively as possible. Not maintaining your electrical equipment means you may not be safe, you will be breaking the law and your insurance could be invalidated.
