What is Test and Tagging?
Do I need to have my appliances Tested and Tagged?

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.

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.

Maintenance Requirements

Just like any other business owners, landlords want the relationship between home owner and tenant to be a happy one. If you don’t maintain your property, you’re putting the occupants at risk. Your mistakes could cost more than just damages, it could cost somebody’s life.

These are the electrical safety requirements for landlords.

  • prior to re-letting the property, ensure that all appliances are working properly and functioning safely

  • make sure electrical appliances are inspected and cleaned to avoid fire and electrical hazards (for example, clearing debris in ventilation and heating/cooling systems)

  • ensure that electrical wiring, outlets, switches, and residual current devices are in a safe and working order

  • only allow a trained professional to conduct electrical or maintenance work

  • keep records of any work or maintenance to prove compliance

According to the Tenancy Check website, the following rules for electrical safety for landlords apply:

  • the landlord must ensure that all installations are working (for example, gas/electricity/cooling/heating)

  • the landlord must ensure that all installations are maintained and safe to use (this only applies to landlord owned appliances)
