PAT – Portable Appliance Testing (usually referred to as PAT Testing) is a process by which electrical appliances in an organisation are checked to see if they are safe. The Musicians’ Union have advised me that, with time, increasing numbers of venues will require PAT certification of electrical equipment e.g. amplifiers used by visiting musicians. Every year in the UK approximately 30 people are killed as a result of coming into contact with electricity, and hundreds more are seriously injured. The Health & Safety Executive states that 25% of all reportable electrical accidents involve portable appliances – kettles, fridges, toasters, fax machines and computers – in other words, the appliances that you and I use every day! There are many good reasons to carry out PAT testing but probably the most compelling reason to have your equipment checked is to consider the likely consequences if you do not have the testing done and you, or one of your band, were to be killed or injured!

I hope that is useful.
