PAT testing by Greenbank Music Village -putting your safety first
Health and safety legislation states that all portable electrical equipment (that’s something with a plug on it) must be tested and maintained to a safe standard before being used in a public or work environment.
Although the law is a little vague on this matter, what you will find is that most venues are demanding it for insurance and H & S purposes. PAT (Portable Appliance Test) will cover you for this.
This means that all your gear should really have a current PAT test before you gig, whether it is in schools marquee pubs or anywhere except your private home.
I have heard horror stories of people/bands not allowed to play if you turn up with no little green stickers on their gear.
