What does Test & Tag involve?
Visual Inspection: The most important test is a visual inspection of the device, especially the power leads. Cords should be firmly anchored in plugs, connections made solidly with no frayed ends.
Electrical Testing: The appliances will be tested with various equipment to look for any unseen electrical faults. These tests during our test & tag services in Brisbane include;
- an insulation resistance test;
- earth continuity,
- earth routine or earth bond test;
- a polarity test;
- earth leakage test.
Record Keeping: Although the AS/NZ 3760:2010 does not refer to record keeping upon completion of any test, various codes of practices refer to this practice. In spite of this we recommend all information gathered in the test & tag process be recorded comprehensively, whether in a database or by hand in a log book.
