Test and Tag Colours and the Purpose of their Use
In certain industries, such as construction or demolition sites, mining sites and others, test and tag colours are used to make easy for the Work Safe or your Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) representative to understand that all the electrical equipment used in your business premises have been tested regularly. In Australia, mainly four colours are utilised on a quarterly basis that includes red, blue, green and yellow.
