Electrical testing ensures that electrical items are checked on a regular basis to guarantee that they are safe. There is a proper term for the entire procedure. In-service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment is what it's called.
It is a health and safety requirement for persons who operate with electrical equipment to guarantee that their equipment is safe, in order to protect workers from injury. Certain appliances must be checked at regular intervals to maintain their safety; the interval at which they must be tested varies on the environment in which they are used and the specific device in question.
You could face harsh sanctions if a worker or another individual is injured by a non-compliant (un-tested) device. It's simple to detect if an appliance has been tested because it will have different labels based on the test's outcome. For instance, if the appliance passes, it might have a sticker that reads, 'Passed, Tested for Electrical Safety.' 'Tested for Electrical Safety, Do Not Use After the Following... and a Date' is another option (the date states when the appliance must next be tested).
Equipment is normally divided into two categories (High Risk) and (Low Risk), with High-Risk appliances being tested every three months and Low-Risk appliances being checked every six months. This was put in place in the 1960s and has stayed in place ever since.
