Testing and tagging electrical appliances is one useful way to show that your equipment is electrically safe.
For all your electrical appliances
According to the Electrical Safety Regulations 2010, all electrical appliances within the workplace needs to be inspected and tested for electrical safety under the New Zealand Standard AS/NZS3760:2010.

an environment where the equipment/supply cord is prone to flexing or open to abuse
hotels, residential institutions, motels, boarding houses, halls, hostels accommodation houses etc
an environment where the equipment/supply cord is not prone to flexing or open to abuse
