Test and Tag
What is Test and Tag?
‘Test and Tag’ is a process where a trained person checks portable electronic appliances, such as wheelchairs, scooters, electrical assistive technology, kettles, irons or toasters, with a testing device to make sure they are safe.
The process is completed in three steps:
- The person will inspect and check the appliance visually for any damage.
- They will then test the appliance with a portable appliance tester and conduct the required checks.
- Lastly, they will place a sticker tag on the item that confirms it has been tested and states when it is due for its next test.
This process is to be completed every twelve months to ensure the appliances in your home are compliant and safe for your support staff to use.
Who needs it?
It is extremely important that all households, workplaces and facilities have their electronic devices tested for safety.
Especially for those who regularly have support staff coming into your home. Your support staff need to be kept safe using your appliances. We appreciate this is your home but it is your support staff’s workplace and you have a legal requirement to keep it safe, by having your electronic appliances tested and tagged – your staff are kept safe.
