A PAT on the back – 25 years of The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989

09 September 2014

Introduced to improve workplace safety, the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 have become the main driving force behind the development of what is now known as portable appliance testing – or PAT for short

To mark this milestone, electrical test specialist Seaward has produced a special white paper looking at the impact of the EAWR 1989 and how PAT has developed over this period.

The special document provides an overview of PAT testing and looks at the relationship of the regulations with the HSE guidance notes and the IET Code of Practice.

Also provided are relevant statistics on the progress made in reducing workplace injuries linked to electricity and on the contributory role of faulty electrical appliances in commercial and industrial property fires.

The ability of PAT programmes to help identify counterfeit electrical products, and those subject to product recall notices, is also discussed alongside the principles involved in a common sense approach to achieving compliance with the EAWR.

The Seaward ‘25 Years of the Electricity At Work Regulations 1989’ white paper is available as a free download from www.seaward.co.uk/eawr25
