The provision of new appliances should be safe without requiring a formal portable appliance inspection or test. However, a quick visual inspection is advised to ensure they are undamaged and there is no fire risk.
Electrical equipment should be examined at least once a year to ensure they are safe and working properly, according to Fire and Safety recommendations. However, a common sense approach to testing states that if an item is regularly used or is a high-voltage appliance, such as a power tool, it should be checked more frequently because the possibility of failure is considerably higher. Serviceteam can advise you on the period between testing for certain items.
