What Does Test and Tag Entail
It is unsurprising to us that there are plenty of people out there that do not fully understand what the test and tag process involves. We believe that this is as a result of the fact that while necessary, it is not obligatory for companies in all industries to complete such inspections. Read More
Those in the construction, mining and demolition industries are the exception, given that their electrical appliances can be expected to experience considerably higher rates of wear and tear, due to the more intensive and repetitive nature of the work. As such, while they are required to complete test and tag inspections every three months, other companies leave themselves much more open to risk by failing to regularly carry out check-ups.
Test and tag in Launceston basically involves a visual inspection of all electrical appliances to determine if there is any damage, wear and tear, if the correct safety labelling is in place, if cabling is intact and unbroken, if any modifications have been made and to ensure that the plug that is in use matches the amount of current that is used.
Once your appliances meet this initial inspection, a PAT machine is then used to determine whether any faults or manufacturing issues lie within the appliance, which cannot be detected by visual inspection. The PAT machine will check the insulation and leakage as well as the resistance.
Further checks to determine the integrity of Class I and Class II equipment will also be performed, and once all appliances have passed, a tag is generated, which includes the date of the test and date that the next test is due.
