The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 require any electrical system to be constructed, maintained and used in such a manner as to prevent danger. This means that inspection and testing of systems, including portable appliances, is needed in order to determine if maintenance is required.
This book explains in clear language what needs to be done and includes expert advice on legislation as well as actual testing. The book contains an appendix providing the electrical fundamentals needed by non-specialists and also has sample questions (with answers) for the C&G 2377-22 and 32 exams that anyone who conducts this work is required to take by law.
It is an affordable and handy reference for electricians who administer PAT. It is also an ideal refesher and revision guide for the non-specialist, such as maintenance staff, caretakers and charity shop volunteers who carry out these tasks part-time, alongside their many other duties.

The practical guide to PAT compliance -- updated for the new Code of PracticeFrom the Back Cover:
The legal requirements for regular testing of all electrical equipment in work environments and public places have made testing a major growth area for electricians over recent years. Many staff without electrical training, such as maintenance staff and caretakers, are also being nominated by their employers to carry out electrical safety testing.
This book is ideal for electricians administering PAT, and non-specialists following a City and Guilds course. It has been written specifically to meet the demands of the City and Guilds 2377 exam, and is the only available text for this course. The book contains an appendix providing the electrical fundamentals needed by non-specialists, but it is also an essential reference guide for anyone - technician or manager - with responsibility for PAT.
