Test and Tag prevent risks related to fires and electric shocks
It is imperative that you always test and tag electrical appliances in your home or workplace to minimize risks associated with fires and electric shocks. Electrical fires can result in massive damage and even put lives at risk. The most common type of electrical fire is caused by extension cords, which are commonly run through unprotected areas. Damaged extension cords can expose exposed wire, which could ignite flammable materials in the vicinity. Faulty outlets may also create a spark and cause a shock or burn.
Testing and Tagging ensure compliance with workplace safety regulations
The best way to ensure that your work area is safe is to have your equipment regularly tested. This can be tracked through the use of a durable tag, which displays the date of the last test and the next scheduled test inspection. You should always follow the standards set by the Australian Standard AS/NZS 3760, but your workplace may require more frequent testing. For example, building and construction sites require more frequent testing than other industries, as the working environment is harsh.
You should perform tests and tagging every three to five years, depending on the type of workplace you work in. Testing is recommended for electrical equipment in construction sites, outdoor environments, and in damp conditions. For office environments, testing is less frequent but still essential to minimise workplace risks.
