Professional Test and Tag Carine Assessment

When you book a test and tag service, a team of trained and qualified technicians will arrive at your location. They will conduct a thorough visual inspection of the electrical equipment to identify any visible signs of damage, wear, or inadequate maintenance. This assessment helps to identify potential risks and prioritise the subsequent testing procedures.

Electrical Testing

Once the visual inspection is complete, the technicians will move on to the electrical testing phase. During this phase, technicians will use specialised testing equipment to perform several tests such as the following:

  • Electrical integrity test
  • Insulation resistance test
  • Earth continuity test
  • Other relevant parameters

The test procedures can vary depending on the type of equipment and industry-specific procedures. That is why it is very important that you hire a reliable test and tag company. A technician who has trained regularly and has long standing experience regarding test and tag can perform the job efficiently.

This involves using specialised testing equipment to assess the equipment’s electrical integrity, insulation resistance, earth continuity, and other relevant parameters.

Tagging and Labeling

After the testing is completed, the technicians will affix tags or labels to each tested appliance or piece of equipment. These tags provide essential information, including the date of the test, the testing technician’s details, and the next scheduled testing date. The tags act as visual indicators that the equipment has undergone testing and is safe to use until the next scheduled test.

The tags will also be different in color depending which month the test was done. To simplify the tracking of test and tag inspections, many service providers implement a color system that assigns a different color to each month of the year. The following are the corresponding colour for each month.

Red – December to February
Green – March to May
Blue – June to August
Yellow – September to November

This systematic approach makes it easier to identify the timeframe in which the last inspection took place and to plan for future testing accordingly.
