RCD Safety Switches (also know as Residual Current Devices or ELCB's). They measure the time taken for the switch to close following a current leakage fault being simulated. RCD's must be tested regularly in accordance with local regulation and the AS/NZS3760:2003.
RCD testing is an important and sometimes neglected aspect of AS/NZS3760:2003. Regular testing of fixed and portable RCDs is required to ensure their operation should leakage to earth occur in the workplace.

RCD’s will not protect people against active and neutral faults
If a fault is with the active and Neutral wires electrocution can occur
Testing and tagging will also assist to identify faulty items
