Test and tag describes the testing and labelling of electrical equipment for health and safety purposes. This is typically done by a specialised electrician, who can identify faulty items and repair them if necessary. The testing is undertaken using dedicated equipment, which can identify any insulation deficiencies as well as earth leakages. A pass or fail vinyl label is then attached to the appliance or equipment. Examples of dangerous equipment include: exposed wiring, broken casing, missing buttons and faulty insulation.
Electricians are required by law to be accredited and licensed to operate in Australia. This includes familiarity with current wiring regulation and national standards applicable to the electrical field.
Electrocution can be potentially fatal, so follow these guidelines to avoid an incident in your home or on your premises:
