The frequency of testing and tagging largely depends on the type of environment and the specific equipment in use.
Here's a guideline to help you determine the right intervals:
Construction and Demolition Sites: Every 3 months.
Factories, Workshops, and Manufacturing Environments: Typically every 6 months.
Places with Equipment Supplied by Cord Extension Sets: Annually, or every 12 months.
Office Environments: Devices such as computers, printers, and stationary power tools should be inspected annually.
Commercial Cleaning Equipment: Every 6 months.
Residential Areas in Hotels, Motels, and Similar Establishments: Every 2 years.
Hire Equipment: Before each hire.
