Electrical appliances are crucial part of the modern world. From electric kettles to coffee machines, we are either exposed to or using one every moment of our lives. While electricity is a crucial component of daily living and for businesses, it is also a potential hazard which is why it needs to be tested and tagged.
Test and tag is a safety procedure that involves inspecting, testing, and tagging electrical appliances and equipment to ensure their safe operation. It is commonly carried out in workplaces, schools, hospitals, and other public or commercial settings where electrical appliances are used.
The purpose of test and tag is to identify any potential electrical hazards or faults in appliances that could pose a risk to the safety of users or the surrounding environment. It involves conducting a visual inspection and a series of electrical tests to assess the integrity and functionality of the appliance.
During the test and tag process, a qualified technician or an electrician will inspect the appliance for any visible signs of damage, wear, or loose connections. They will also perform a range of tests, including insulation resistance, earth continuity, and polarity testing, to ensure the appliance complies with relevant electrical safety standards and regulations.
