Do I need to have my appliances Tested and Tagged?
It is every employer's obligation under the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2000 to ensure that they provide a safe place of work for their employees.
This includes ensuring that the risk of electric shock from portable electrical equipment and appliances is minimised.
There are substantial penalties for employers and all levels of management where inadequate safety leads to the injury or death of a worker.
Electrical testing and tagging forms a part of your workplace risk management system.
What is Test and Tagging?
Electrical testing and tagging is the procedure of safety checking for electrical appliances.
Workplaces must be able to demonstrate safe systems of work, including electrical safety. Portable appliances such as power tools, extension leads, kitchen appliances, and computers are just a few examples of equipment types that need frequent testing.
The more frequently devices are used, the more likely they are to be poorly handled. This equipment as well as those used in more hostile environmental conditions are often more likely to become electrically unsafe.
