PAT Labels


How will I know when an appliance is overdue for testing?


All portable appliances which are required to be tested should have the date of the next due test on the label.


If you discover that an appliance is overdue for testing, you should report this to the health and safety rep as soon as possible.  Do not use the appliance until it has been tested and passed.
