In Australia Testing and Tagging of equipment has become vital in ensuring the safety of all employees. It is currently not legislated unless your company falls under the industry of construction, mining or demolition. Due to the harsh nature of these three industries, equipment should be tagged every 3 months. For all other industries, tagging is recommended every 6 months
An electrician is not required to perform testing and tagging of equipment. Someone who is considered a competent person is allowed to tag the equipment. Items that should be tested include any item that has a flexible cord that can be removed from the appliance and is also not a low voltage.
An item that is tagged contains a coloured tag. The tag would contain such details as the date of testing, who tested the appliance, as well as the date for the next test. The test involves visually inspecting the item as well as using a test and tag machine.
We believe the best designed portable testing device on the market is the Seaward. It offers user friendly design, many useful features, as well as being battery powered and printer compatible
