Portable Appliance Testing

Primary goal of testing safety of electrical equipment is to use all electrical equipment without danger. Common accidents caused by electrical equipment are:

  • Injuries through electric shock caused by malfunctioned equipment;
  • Injuries through overheated equipment;
  • Fire and explosions.

To prevent risk and possible danger caused by using electrical appliances and other equipment appropriate safety testing procedure should be performed. Testing of electrical equipment is not regulated the same way in all countries. For instance in Germany, UK, Australia testing of all electrical equipment is strictly regulated by law. Through their positive experience it can be assumed that other countries will follow in the future.
