Countries like Australia, New Zealand and UK have made it mandatory for the workplaces using the electrical appliances to have the electrical testing services regularly. But why it is important is the question that everyone asks. It is very much critical that the workplace is made safe for the working employees and it has been seen that many accidents happen due to faulty electrical appliances or the wire system if it has not been tested for years. Even a little electrical appliance like microwave and fridge could cause the bigger damage.
How is tagging performed?
When the technician tests the electrical appliance and clears it to be safe for use then he tags the product with the date and the description telling that it has been tested and cleared. From this tag, the business owner knows that when the appliance was tested and when will it require testing again. You may not understand the risks involved with the electrical appliance if these are damaged and are in use. These could cause electrical shocks and could start fire in the building. The starting of the fire by the faulty electrical appliance is one of the major cases in most of the workplaces. Therefore, it is the job of the appliance tagging services to identify if some electrical appliance owns a potential risk.
How much does the test and tag cost?
There are two types of the testing and tagging, one in which the technician team from some test and tag company is hired for the appliance tagging services and these come to your workplace and check all the electrical appliance and second is the in house testing and tagging which is done by the staff of the company but for this you not only need to hire the technical experts but also need to buy the testing devices which are important and necessary to check the electrical appliance. Not only this but you will have to keep on providing them training to ensure that their knowledge is up to date and they are able to test the products efficiently and accurately. Then our also need to pay for the various reporting software and other materials which they will be needing for the guidance. All things considered, it has been observed that the in house testing and tagging is more expensive and difficult to maintain and manage then the outsourced services. The outsourced services are insured which means that if any damage happen to your appliances during the testing processes then this company will cover the cost whereas in case of in house, you will be responsible for this. There are now many companies who are working in the country providing these services and you could find any of these online based on your requirement. Have these booked and reserved for your workplace and you will be amazed by the services they will provide you.
