Why test & tag? What is electrical appliance testing?
In order to combat the injuries and deaths caused by electrocution and to help cut down on the number of destructive fires across Australia and New Zealand, the government insists on a process known as “test and tag.” This involves a comprehensive visual inspection and special testing of all in-service electrical equipment within a facility. Also the equipment must conform with the standards laid out in a published document, and all inspections need to take place on a prescribed basis. It’s important for you to check if your facility is required to conform with this legislation, and how often it needs to be done.
How Often Do You Need to Test and Tag?
Testing intervals vary by type of facility, site and /or environment and equipment.
For example, factories, workshops and other similar facilities must have their class I and class 2 equipment, cord sets, extension sets and epods tested every six months. However, a hotel or similar institution it is recommended to do this every two years. For residual current devices (RCDs), DEPENDING ON THE ENVIRONMENT A MONTHLY TRIP TIME TEST needs to be done. Reference should be made to the AS 5762 for full details.
Do You Need to Be an Electrician to Test and Tag?
According to the legislation, a competent, trained and qualified person is allowed to test and tag and need not be an electrician. They need to have the required theoretical and practical skills and should have gained these through training, qualification and experience. Each person will need to have an understanding of what’s involved, the dangers of electricity, the application requirements of the rules and any other state legislation. Whoever performs the tests will have to be competent in the use of the right calibrated equipment in order to correctly check for any internal fault.
Who Can Test and Tag Electrical Equipment?
