What we do
Our Tester will make a visual check on plugs and connecting cables and use a testing meter to check the insulation.
Each item will be listed and the customer receives a copy for reference at the next testing date.
Our Tester will also label each item of equipment with a PASS or FAIL Label with a reference as on the list.
