PAT testing can often be overlooked as it isn't a legal requirement and doesn't even have to be handled annually but HSG 107 states that "any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury is maintained in a safe condition". 
 
So... 
 
it's not a legal requirement 
it doesn't have to be done annually 
 
...so why do it at all? 
 
 

Staying Safe & Keeping Safe 

As the HSE states, if it has the potential to cause injury it needs to be in a safe condition. 
 
We recommend routine checks simply to keep on top of this but, for instance a desk lamp will probably never cause you a problem although a drill in constant use might. 
 
If you hire in electrical equipment you should ensure that this is in a safe condition to use and ideally the hire company will have PAT tested their appliances as it is their responsibility.
