 WHAT IS TEST & TAGGING?

What does this mean for your business ?

‘ Test and Tag ’ is the name commonly used for the process of ensuring your electrical equipment and appliances are safe to use in the workplace.

In order to make these items safe, one must comply with the strict work health and safety regulations put in place by the Australian Government. The standard specification AS/NZS3760:2003 requires business owners to undertake this safety process on a regular basis in order to meet law requirements.

Who can Test and Tag in my business ?

The regulation states that testing must be carried out by a ‘competent person’. That person should be able to use test equipment safely and effectively, must have an understanding of the construction of the equipment, the requirements of the standard, the dangers of electricity and the legislative requirements.

Quality Electrics test and tag company have fully trained electricians to ‘Test and Tag’ and carry out on-site repairs of defective items.

What does test and tagging involve ?

The main activities associated with the simplest form of testing and tagging:

Testing and Inspection:-

Visual inspection of portable appliances before being tested to ensure electrical safety. The electrical safety of an appliance is usually measured using the following tests:

  • Earth Continuity (of earthed appliances)
  • Insulation/leakage (of all appliances)
  • Polarity (of extension leads and power cords)
 

Tagging:-

Once tested and determined safe, appliances are tagged, indicating that they’ve been passed as electrically safe (at the time of testing). The tags applied with self-adhesive. They typically feature the following information:

  • Company name (sometimes printed)
  • Licence or contract number of person testing
  • Test date
  • Next test date

Recording Results:-

A register of appliances tested is one of the most important aspects of ‘testing and tagging’. A register of all equipment tested should be kept, along with the test and inspection details and detail of any repairs.
