    Hi, if any of the items are used by any member of the business for any purpose on the business premises, then they fall within the scope of the H & S regs which insist on them being maintained in such a manner that risk to users is eliminated.Obviously , how you do that is up to you, but PA testing is probably the most cost effective way.

    Legally you just need to ensure that you have a maintenance program in place which could involve a full test or just a visual inspection although your insurance company may stipulate that you should have them tested periodically with a certificate on hand. I'd check with the insurance company first just to make sure.
