The types of portable appliance testing in Hamilton
A portable appliance is any electrical appliance that can be moved around. It’s easy in a factory environment to forget that this also means appliances in the kitchen.
There are all manner of portable appliances in the home ranging from portable heaters and vacuum cleaners to toasters, microwaves, hair dryers and more. Ultimately, whatever uses electricity needs to be inspected and tested regularly.
This applies to everything that is:
- already in use,
- new and being used for the first time,
- returned to service after repairing or servicing,
- purchased at a second-hand shop, or
- hired for temporary use.
Remember, portable appliance testing also covers items such as cables and extension leads, power boards, adapters, and portable RCDs (safety switches).
To know you have the proper testing and tagging carried out, you need experts with the correct testing equipment.
