Intervals for Appliance Testing and Tagging
All electrical appliances need to undergo testing and tagging to ensure that they are safe for people to use. The office is a place filled with so many electrical equipment that can be hazardous, especially if not handled properly. Any workplace should undergo a testing or electrical tagging on a regular basis to ensure that all electrical equipment are working properly and does not pose a threat to anyone who uses it. Companies can always have test and tag their equipment as often as they want, but this may be a bit expensive especially for companies who rely on service companies to do the work for them.
Below are different types of work places and the standard interval for each test and tag session.
A regular office compared to other workplace environments is actually one of the places which have the least hazardous gadgets in it. A regular workplace, depending on the number of employees, will just have computers, fax machines, copiers, phones, and some home appliances such as a coffee maker, water dispenser, and a refrigerator. Most offices do not operate for very long hours, so the event of having overheating equipment, and faulty wiring is quite low. Because of this, office work places only require an Appliance Testing and Tagging every 5 years at the most.
Unlike office work places, construction areas are more prone to accidents such as electrocution and faulty wiring. Electrical equipment in a construction site include the elevators that bring construction people up and down the unfinished buildings, the bulldozers, and all the other electrical tools that can just break down and cause fatal accidents to anyone who uses it. Because of this Construction companies will need a test and tag session by competent people or service companies such as A1 testing and tagging every 3 months at the very least. This is to ensure the safety of all construction personnel and to make sure that no one is harmed while an infrastructure is being built.
Both equipments at the office or at construction companies aren’t used continuously as compared to the rides we see at amusement parks. These rides are used almost every day from day to night especially on peak seasons where in they can over heat. Park officials should monitor each amusement ride and check if it is still safe to ride. The whole amusement park is powered by electricity, for rides which are new and heat insulated an appliance test and tag at least every 12 months in needed, for older non insulated rides, have them checked every 6 months.
