Electrical Equipment Testing & Tagging

If you are a business or an employer you must ensure that all electrical equipment is regularly inspected and tested by a competent inspector. We use industry leading technology to provide you with the fastest and best service possible.

We provide advice on the most suitable testing frequency, 2d barcode asset identification, detailed reports of all items tested and their results and clear, bright and easy to read tags. You will also only ever pay for items that pass inspection.

There are a number of factors that determine whether or not an appliance will pass the test and tag inspections. By subjecting the appliance to a series of tests we can tell if the integrity of the item has been compromised, then take steps to repair the item or remove it from service to prevent incident or injury.

Depending on the type of appliance, we will perform a combination of the following tests and inspection using the advanced Portable Appliance Testing equipment from “Pro Tag” and “Seaward”.

  • Physical inspection
  • Insulation Tests
  • Earth circuit Test
  • Continuity Test
  • Functionality Test
  • Run / Leakage Test
  • Polarity wire Test
  • Visual Inspections

3-Phase Test & Tag

3 Phase appliances while normally are not portable, they are still subject to damage due to environment and general wear and tear of moving parts and require testing and tagging. JAB Safety Services use specialized equipment to test 3 phase appliances giving you the knowledge that the items tested and tagged are safe for use by your work force.

RCD/safety switch Test& tag

JAB Safety Services tests and tags all Residual Current devices (RCDs) and earth leakage circuit breakers for every business and industry .By law RCDs are to be fitted to all electrical circuits and require specialized trip time testing. This ensures that in case of an incident the switch will trip power in time to prevent serious injury or death. Most RCD faults are a result of dust and moisture buildup, this is why it is important to have all RCDs tested and tagged at regular frequencies.

Minor Repairs to Appliances

In addition to these services, JAB Safety provides onsite repair and assessment of damaged appliances. We repair equipment faults onsite such as:

  • Replacement of male and female plug ends
  • Replacement of damaged leads
  • Refit and re-anchor existing leads

We will also advise you of the faults and damage to your appliances that cannot be fixed on site, and help you determine the best course of action.
