Faulty electrical appliances in Auckland are a hazard that’s invisible to most employers and employees. Would you know if you have damaged or broken devices on the production floor? Sure, it works in its damaged condition, but that doesn’t mean it is safe to use?
Picture this scenario: You walk into your office or production work area and discover the electrical cord on a piece of equipment is worn with bits of the insulation sheath frayed.
Now typically we might all be known to just wrap tape around the worn-out spot and call it a day. The appliance should not be used nonstop or until it breaks apart.
Auckland Test & Tag means that the equipment will be check to see if it still works, but this also determines if the electrical appliance is safe to use and will not cause harm.
