What is Test and Tag?

Testing and tagging involves both a visual inspection and the electrical testing of in-service equipment for personal safety (including all portable appliances and some relocatable or fixed equipment, depending on its method of connection to the electrical source).

A regular Test and Tag program comprises of:

  • A visual check to ensure no obvious problems
  • A series of electrical tests to ensure the safety of the item
  • Tagging of the equipment to indicate to users that the item has been identified as safe in accordance with AS/NZS 3760:2010 and when the item is due to be tested again
  • Provision of a Detailed Asset Register and Log Book

Why should I Test and Tag my electrical equipment?

A well planned program of preventive maintenance, with regular electrical safety checks, is the ideal way to avoid unnecessary and unfortunate accidents, as well as the legal ramifications that follow.

This gives you piece of mind knowing that you and your family are safe, as are your staff and collegues... plus your tools, office equipment and appliances are kept in a safe working order.



Avoid claim defaults

Maintaining your tools and equipment in perfect working order, lessens the chance of electrical fault, even fire - which protects your insurance cover.

  • Flexible cords connected to fixed equipment
  • Cord extension sets and power boards
