Test & Tag FAQs

If you run a business that operates any type of electrical equipment that isn’t part of a fixed installation and one that you intend to connect to an electricity supply, then by law it needs testing and tagging. With this in mind, we’ve answered some of the more frequently asked questions so that you have a better understanding of what it entails.

Who is allowed to test and tag?

More often than not testing is carried out by a fully licensed electrician or an official testing and tagging company. However, on occasions, it can also be carried out by a competent individual utilising a pass/fail type of equipment known as a portable appliance tester (PAT). This equipment requires no technical interpretation however an operator would need to pass a competency test.

So what equipment is applicable to regular testing and tagging?

As stated earlier anything that’s not part of a fixed installation and relies on electricity to power it. This could be portable machinery, power adaptors, office machinery including computers, and even toasters and kettles in break rooms and canteens.

How often does electrical equipment need testing?

Items vary depending upon their type and usage. For example, in extreme circumstances, testing could be done daily. However, more often than not they’re monthly, quarterly, annually and bi-annually. More information about individual items can be found in the Australian Standards.

When hiring a test and tag service what should you expect?

They should be able to provide you with sound knowledge and advice in meeting any compliance obligations you may have. They’ll also provide a thorough test so that you know that when it’s passed, that piece of equipment is totally safe to use.

How long does the test & tag process take?

Clearly, this depends on the range of free-standing electrical equipment you have but as a general rule of thumb, you should allow a couple of minutes for each piece of equipment to be thoroughly tested.

What are the common causes of test & tag failure?

There are two main scenarios. Firstly the green (earth) wire becomes detached from the metal casing. To all intent and purpose, it continues to function properly. However, if a further fault does occur and the electricity flows into the metal casing, then the user is going to get an electric shock.

The second scenario is an internally worn power cord. Again the cord might seem normal on the outside but if the copper wiring is starting to appear through the insulation, it can short circuit, causing a serious electrical hazard.

If you want total peace of mind when it comes to your electrical appliances then contact Static Electrics. Our highly experienced technicians carry out testing and tagging on a regular basis. To find out more information, either visit our site or alternatively call us directly on 07 3497 5076.
