Wired by Wyatt’s electrical testing services are essential for ensuring the safety of your home or workplace. Testing and tagging gives you and your family the best protection against electrical faults and failures.
Electrical connections and appliances should be regularly and properly maintained to minimise the potential for dangerous faults that can often prove expensive to repair. The first step in the process is conducting a thorough visual inspection of all cords, plugs and appliances. Items such as toasters are checked for any loose parts that could lead to potential electrical problems.
This initial visual testing is followed by a range of additional tests, including:
- Insulation Resistance:A layer of insulation protects users from the electrical currents of an appliance. This test makes sure that the resistance is still fully functional.
- Polarity:A polarity test ensures that cords and wires have not become compromised.
- Leakage:Our electrician will power up your appliances and use special equipment to measure if any electrical leakage occurs.
Once testing has been completed, the tagging process begins. Proper testing and tagging provides details that are critical for safety and essential for future maintenance. A tag should include relevant information such as the test date, the person who conducted the test and whether the tested item passed or failed, as well as the required retest date for future reference. Tagging also requires a comprehensive record of results to be kept, with any faults noted.
It’s important that all electrical testing is conducted by qualified and licensed professionals. Wired by Wyatt has over a decade of experience in testing and tagging services in Sydney, and we’re only a phone call away. Contact us on 0402 703 144 or submit an online enquiry today.
