A systematic program of test and tag is the best method of identifying dangerous electrical appliances. A visual check of the item to be tested is performed to ensure there are no cracks in the casing or nicks in the leads or equipment and that the equipment is in good condition and is safe to test.
The physical tests are then performed on our Portable Appliance Tester System (PATS). If the item being tested passes both the visual and physical test, the tester automatically prints a durable, no-reusable tag showing a unique barcofde number and retest date. This tag is then attached to the item. Prior to testing any portable appliances our technician will perform an earth fault loop impedance (EFLI) test on the power point we use to power our Portable Appliance Tester. A faulty power point can result in a false pass result on the tester and can potentially mean an unsafe situation for employers/employees.
