What is a Music PAT test?

What is a Music PAT test? If you are a musician who has little experience of Health and Safety regulations, and I would hazard a guess that includes most musicians, then you might be unaware of the need to have a Music PAT carried out on your equipment before you perform in public.

Music PATs are essentially no different to any other form of PAT Testing. A fully qualified PAT Tester will arrive at your property and will conduct a series of inspections and assessments of the electrical appliances that you would use when you perform live in public. Your electrical instruments, microphones, amps etc. will all be plugged into a PAT Testing machine to check that there are no malfunctions or faults inside them. Visual checks will also be carried out on all of them to make sure nothing has been damaged to dangerous levels. The PAT Tester will be careful with all of the delicate and sensitive equipment in his Music PAT inspections.

The Music PAT is fast becoming a requirement in nearly every performance venue in the country. Most venues are realising that they would be held responsible if a fire or some form of electrical harm or damage were to occur from any equipment brought in to their property by the musicians they hire. Fortunately, the Music PAT test offers a simple and easy way to check that everything is safe and no one will be hurt during the performance. Gigs have been cancelled before due to lack of Music PAT Testing, so do not risk losing money for the sake of a simple, safe and useful procedure.
