Festive Lights – a myth?

The Myth:

Indoor Christmas lights need a portable appliance test (PAT) every year

The reality:

Lots of companies waste money in the false belief they need to test their Christmas lights annually, or even don’t put them up at all!  By following a few sensible precautions, such as checks by the user for obvious signs of damage, every workplace can switch on safely and sparkle!
