What exactly is testing and tagging?
A lot of business owners are familiar with the expression ‘test and tag’, however, some do not understand what it precisely means. For those in the dark, testing and tagging is the term given to the process of testing equipment and appliances in order to reduce electrical hazards to people in the workplace. The equipment is tested for damage, defects, insulation resistance and polarity. Once equipment is examined and tested, it is tagged with a label to show it is safe to use. The label also includes information about when the item next needs to be inspected. The overall aim of the test and tag is to establish whether the equipment and appliances in the workplace are safe to use. Once test and tagging has been performed, it will decrease the chance of employees receiving electric shocks.
