What exactly is a test and tag service and how does it work?

The term ‘Test and Tag’ is relatively unique to Australia and relates to the important process of checking and ensuring the safety of a range of different electrical appliances (usually portable devices). The process typically involves two key components. Firstly, in most instances, one of our highly trained team members will visually inspect the appliance and go on to test it with a Portable Appliance Tester. Once the process has been completed, the device or appliance is then given a tag.

This tag is provided in accordance with current legislative guidelines and also functions to assure anyone who may come into contact with the device that it has been checked and is safe to use. Tags also outline who tested the device, when it was tested, and more importantly, when it needs to be next tested.

In simple terms, the overarching function of a testing and tagging service is to make sure that people are safe by significantly reducing, and sometimes eliminating, the risk of an electrical hazard.
