What is meant by ‘Test and Tag’?

The term ‘test and tag’ relates to portable appliance testing and is essential for maintaining and securing safety. It’s often thought that test and tag services are only applicable to workplaces but, in actual fact, a test and tag service is important for any and all businesses, as well as within the domestic location of the home.

If portable electrical devices, such as tools, equipment or instruments, are not maintained properly or not used for the appropriate purpose, then this can lead to those devices becoming dangerous. This can make a workplace environment dangerous for staff, customers, clients and visitors – basically anyone who enters into that area.

Without the use of a proper test and tag service, the chances of an electrical hazard causing injury, or even a fatality, are highly increased. We want to help grant you peace of mind by sending one of our highly trained and proficient staff to test and tag all of your electrical devices so that you know that they are safe to use. That way, you are protecting all who come into contact with that device, as well as the property that device is used at.
