Because we work with teachers? Seriously though, NONE of the Elf & Safety lark would be needed IF common sense was at all common.

Science Tech tests the Science equipment, I test the IT equipment as needed (noting all the above about visual inspections being sufficient, etc etc), site team do everything else.
You don't have to test new stuff, as it is tested in production, however our previous site manager liked to test them and put a sticker on them on Day 1 so he knew for definite how old they were - he found it the most effective way to keep track of exactly which vacuum cleaner was which, and therefore when each one's test was due.

No. It MAY just be batch tested in production, or in the case of some CE stuff, just plain illegally marked. I have commented in the other PAT thread current at the moment on 13A plugs coming in from China that are unfused, unsleeved, physically small, and with substandard cable. This is why you need to check or test before taking into service.

It's worth taking the course purely for the information you learn. Our external company tests *everything* (they are paid per test), and they always insist on taking our server/comms racks apart to test them. I am now qualified to remind them of what the actual requirements are.... Also, I found out just how dangerous my house is and that I didn't really understand wattage/fuse ratings and proper use of extension cables.

Just found this thread and have a general question. If I replace a PSU on a workstation with a brand new one, should that computer have to be PAT tested before going back into circulation?

Yes. That way you could PROVE that it was "safe" when it went into use. It maybe that the PSU will have some form of individual manufacturers test pass sticker, by which you could avoid testing.
There are things out there like cables that are only batch tested.

Boss / Myself and Technician will be having PAT Testing Training in the next few weeks as its not that expensive and the company will come on site nice qualification to have will always come in handy hehe

Well I hope I don't have to replace a PSU then, as our office manager refuses to have an individual item pat tested, so it could be out of commission for 11 months, that'll be interesting

If it is a brand new PSU then you shouldn't have to test it thats what i was told when i asked (MUST BE BRAND NEW)

New equipment is tested at the factory so is classed as having been tested so will have 12/36 months till next one.

I REALLY can't be bothered any more...
