What Type of Equipment Should Be Tested and Tagged?

This is one of the most common questions our clients ask. To sum it up, all electrical devices that have flexible cables, removable plugs, and are not low voltage should be tested and tagged including cord sets, portable RCDs, and extension leads.
Electrical equipment can be classified into two main categories:
• Class I (Earthed Appliances) such as kettles and irons.
• Class II (Double Insulated Appliances): These appliances can be identified with either a symbol (A Square within a square) or the words “Double Insulated” such as drills and dryers.
Notice that new equipment just needs a thorough visual inspection and tagging. They don’t need to be tested.

The Areas we services in Brisbane are:

How Often Must Electrical Appliances Be Tested and Tagged?

The frequency of testing and tagging (also known as intervals) depends on the nature of your work environment. The AS/NZS 3760 Australian Standard suggests the following frequencies for testing and tagging intervals. Notice that these recommendations are the minimum requirement.

Despite these intervals, some workplaces need to carry out a regular risk assessment. In other words, they can have their own specific testing and tagging frequencies. Usually, these frequencies are more than the previous recommendations. Of course, it is better to test and tag appliances more frequently to ensure the safety of employees and workers.

Type of Work Environment The Recommended Interval
• Construction & Building
• Demolition
Quarterly/ every 3 months
• Factories
• Production
• Warehouse
Twice a year/ every 6 months:
• Schools
• Offices
• Office Kitchens
• Anyplace where equipment and wiring are susceptible to abuse/misuse
• Server rooms or where equipment and wiring are not susceptible to abuse/misuse/cable flexing Every 5 Years

What Is a Portable Appliance Tester (PAT)?

A portable appliance tested or PAT is the main equipment used to test and tag electrical appliances. This device ensures the safety of electrical equipment by providing the electrician with certain results showing whether the equipment failed or passed certain tests.
Anyone can buy and use PAT testers. However, before you do purchase one, there are certain factors to consider such as:
• The price of the PAT. The more, the better.
• The level of functionality you need.
• The features you want.
Before buying a tester, read all the online reviews to find out what you really need.
Of course, buying and using a PAT tester does not replace the need for a professional, licensed electrician to test your appliances. The Australian Standards are clear. A competent person who has taken test and tag courses and has a license is the only person who should professionally test and tag electrical appliances.
