The Socket & See VIPUKIT safe isolation kit combines a CATIV probe tester and battery operated AC proving unit to satisfy the requirement to check the tester before and after use.
Kit consists of:
Electrical safety code of practice 2013
Managing electrical risks in the workplace
9.4 Test instruments
Testing equipment used for detecting an energised source should be checked to prove that it is functioning correctly immediately before and after the test has taken place. The standard test regime is to test a known source of energy, test the de-energised circuit for zero volts then test the known source again.
5.1 General principles – verification of de-energised electrical equipment
If voltage testers are used they should be tested for correct operation immediately before use and again after use to confirm that the instrument is still working. This check should be considered to be part of the ‘TEST FOR ‘DEAD’ BEFORE YOU TOUCH’ safe work principle.
