Whenever an electrical appliance or tool is serviced or supplied for rental a legal responsibility exists to ensure that the product is fit for purpose for which it is intended.

Every year 1,000´s of electrical accidents occur with portable equipment, however, with the diligint implimenation of a safety policy involving inspection and testing it is possible to avoid many of these accidents. OSHA states that to be fully assured of meeting its electrical duty clause any employer using electrical apparatus, in particular portable electronic appliances and electrical equipment on construction sites (because of the recognised hazards that can occur with such equipment) must establish safety programs which demand rigorous inspection and meaningful electrical testing of the equipment.

OSHA states that the tests must check
a) the integrity of the Insulation
b) the effectiveness and continuity of the grounding conductors
c) the operation of personal protective devices i.e. Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI´s) and levels of any leakage.

To meet the requirements of any established safety program it is essential that a record or system is maintained of the tests and checks on every piece of equipment. A tagging system which defines the state of the equipment at any time and displays:
a) Details of Inspection and results of tests carried out
b) if the equipment should be withdrawn from use
c) date of Inspection and Test.
