Is It Time You Got Tested And Tagged?

Published: March 18, 2019 Last Updated: July 30, 2020

You've probably heard of the term “Test and Tag” but just to be sure that all our customers understand the importance of this procedure, and how it can prevent unnecessary and unfortunate accidents from taking place, we thought it would be a good idea to focus this latest blog on the subject.

So what exactly is Test and Tag?

We live in a world where we are heavily reliant on electrical appliances to make our lives easier and in some cases, safer, as well as to inform and entertain us. Unfortunately without due care being paid to the safety of such appliances and devices accidents can and do happen, and in many cases these could have been avoided had those products been tested and tagged. 

Only licensed technicians can carry out test and tag which involves visually inspecting electrical products as well as carrying out electrical tests on in-service equipment to prevent injury to anyone. Equipment includes portable appliances as well as fixed equipment, depending on the manner in which it is connected to a source of electricity.

What a Test and Tag Program consists of:

  • ‍A visual inspection to check for any obvious problems
  • ‍A series of electrical tests to ensure the item is safe
  • ‍Tagging of equipment to show users that it has been passed as safe in compliance with AS/NZS 3760:2010 together with the date on when the item should be tested again
  • Provision of a Log Book and Detailed Asset Register

Why you should get your electrical equipment tested and tagged?

Prevention is always better than the consequences of dealing with an accident or fatality and by maintaining a regular plan of preventative maintenance along with electrical checks, you know that you've done all you can to prevent accidents from occurring and from any legal claims which follow. You'll enjoy peace of mind knowing that your family, staff and colleagues are safe. Furthermore it keeps all appliances, tools and office equipment in perfect working order, which can save you money in the long run.

What sort of items need to be tested?

Practically any item which needs plugging into a power point both either in the home or the workplace should be inspected on a regular basis. These include such things as:

  • ‍Office equipment and computers
  • ‍Hand held, portable, and stationary items
  • ‍Flexible cords of fixed equipment
  • ‍Smoke Detectors
  • ‍Emergency and Exit lights
  • ‍RCD's (Residual Current Devices)
  • Power boards and cord extension sets

If your electrical appliances have never been tested and tagged, or they are approaching their due date for repeat testing, then our electricians can help. As a family owned business operating since 1986, we have a team of highly experienced, customer focused electricians.

    David did an admirable job in installing a new solar inverter to our property. He gave a very clear and concise exp;lanation of how the system worked and what to look for in the event of a system malfunction. It is so satisfying to witness such efficiency!
