Our test and tag inspection process in Canberra
Step 1: Inspection
Technicians perform a visual inspection before physically testing the appliances to determine whether they are safe. If there is any obvious damage, the appliances will not need to be tested.
Step 2: Testing
For appliances that pass the initial inspection, they will next be electronically tested. The electrical safety of an appliance is measured in several processes including polarity, insulation/leakage and earth continuity.
Step 3: Tagging
Once testing is complete, all appliances deemed safe are tagged with a label to indicate they are safe to use. The tag also contains the date they were tagged and when testing needs to be performed again.
Step 4: Recording
Upon completing the test and tag a report is drafted as a record of the findings. The report features details about the test and inspection, as well as any repairs that are necessary. We provide our reports electronically to businesses in a range of formats. We also keep a record of reports on file, as well as storing them online, which can be accessed by the client.
