Electrical testing and Tagging in Australia

In our day to day life we all use different electrical appliances. There are different electrical appliances which we use in our home and office. As these appliances are very useful for us sometimes they can also be very much dangerous to use. Due to this reason we need to test these appliances and tag them with different colour tapes.

Australian Standard Electrical Testing and Tagging Colours: For testing and tagging there are two different scenarios one is if you work on construction and demolition sector you must follow the Australian standard and those who do not work in these sectors can use their own tagging colours.

Test and Tag Basics: What You Need to Know about Testing Electronic Devices and Appliances

Why should you hire an expert to test and tag your electrical appliances? Some business owners think that testing their appliances and electronic devices for potential defects is a waste of time. What they don’t realise is that this precautionary measure can help their businesses in more ways they can imagine.

 

The Importance of Testing Your Workplace Appliances

Industry regulators are requiring all businesses to have their electrical appliances and equipment tested as part of safety requirements. If a business owner fails to comply and the regulators have found out all about it, he or she will have no choice but to pay fines. He or she might be even at a risk of losing his or her business permit.

 

Having workplace appliances tested and taggedprevents businesses from paying fines and/or having their permits or licences revoked. By taking a proactive approach to ensuring the safety of their workplace, they can avoid such inconveniences and potential loss of profits.

 

Another reason why it’s important to test workplace appliances for possible defects is that it helps ensure the safety of one’s customers and employees. As you may know, there are certain appliances and devices that look okay at first glance. But if you look closely, you’ll notice that they have defects that can cause accidents, which can lead to damage to property and loss of lives.

 

Testing and tagging one’s appliances can help prevent disasters and protect businesses from liabilities, compensation claims and potential lawsuits that may be lodged by their customers and/or employees.

 

Testing and Tagging Process

Testing and tagging appliances is certainly not rocket science, but it is a great help to business owners. When testing appliances, licensed testers and inspectors start by conducting an ocular inspection to determine which electronic appliances have potential defects. They inspect an appliance’s plug and cable for signs of wear and tear. They may also disassemble the appliance to determine if there’s any underlying problem.

 

Apart from checking for faulty wiring and electrical problems, the inspectors will also conduct tests to determine if there are gas leaks or leaks of hazardous materials. Afterwards, a tag will be assigned to each appliance or piece of equipment, telling users their rating. The rating allows people to determine what safety precaution they should take before using a particular electronic appliance. It also tells them how safe to use the device is.

 

As the saying goes, “Prevention is better than cure.” Therefore, if you own a business and you don’t want to put everyone’s safety at risk, you should hire someone to conduct appliance testing in your workplace.
