Electrical Appliance Inspection for Laptop Chargers

Posted: January 27, 2022

Laptops come in handy when you’re working on the go, however, because of their portable nature, they’re often susceptible to wear and tear. Staff laptop chargers can often be missed in workplace test and tags, which is quite concerning as they are really portable items and need to be tested frequently to ensure safety. As a general rule, anything that plugs in should be tested routinely. Electrical safety should be a guarantee in every workplace. Our qualified technicians can use test and tag equipment to verify the usability of each unique item.

Test and tag periods for laptop chargers

Test and tag of electrical items is not just a once off process. Equipment, especially portable items, will suffer from wear and tear and accidents and for these reasons, there are Acts and Regulations in place that require a set test and tag period. The frequency of your electrical test and tag is dependent upon the items being serviced, their location, environment and the risks associated with its use. Since laptop chargers are subject to flex, this requires appliance to be tested and tagged at a 12 monthly frequency.
