Test and Tag

The aim of ‘test and tag’ is to determine if an appliance is electrically safe for personal use, and to ensure that it meets the legally required safety standards as outlined in AS/NZS 3760:2003.

In this service, an appliance undergoes a visual inspection (for defects such as damage or missing components) and a number of electrical tests to measure earth continuity, insulation resistance and polarity. This is particularly important in commercial fitness centres where there are often numerous electrically-driven machines being simultaneously run throughout the day.

Following testing, compliant equipment shall be fitted with a durable, non-reusable, non-metallic tag which includes –

(a) the name of the F-E-S technician who performed the tests;
(b) the test or inspection date.

Where in-service inspection or testing identifies equipment which fails to comply with the inspection and/or testing criteria, the equipment shall be appropriately labelled to indicate that the equipment requires remedial action and warn against further use; it is recommended that this equipment is withdrawn from service until remedial action is carried out as it no longer meets the legal standard required for commercial use. The choice of remedial action, disposal or other corrective action to be taken shall be determined by the owner of the fitness centre or domestic home owner.
