Test & Tag
When you Test and Tag your appliances you're making sure that your appliances are safe, that you comply with the requirements of your insurance company, and that you're legally protected. Quite simply, testing and tagging is a compliance issue and requirement.
What do you need to Test and Tag?
You'll need to test and tag all electrical equipment that plugs in or is connected to an electrical power supply socket (using a cord which is flexible or another form of connecting devices). That includes all equipment that is new, second hand, repaired, or that you have available for hire.
When do you need to Test and Tag?
New equipment should be tested before it goes into use within the workplace, and regular testing should be completed over the life of the electrical equipment.
The intervals at which you need to test and tag your electrical equipment is dependent on both the type of equipment, and the environment that the equipment is used in.
Different classes of equipment, RCDs, Cord Sets and Power Boards need to be inspected at different intervals. Environments such as factories and workshops need to be checked more frequently than equipment in residential type areas such as hotels, motels and hostels.
It's best that you ask a Laser Electrician what needs done when for your specific equipment and situation, and they may even be able to assist further by providing you with test and tag schedules and reminders.
