Assuming that the switchgear is isolated from both the load and supply then this is a valid test to ensure separation of the poles.
i was always told megs for insulation resistance,ohms for continuity/resistance
But you're not testing continuity ph-ph in this case, just ensuring that there is not a short between the individual poles i.e. insulation rsistance (the insulation separating the poles).

As you get older, three things happen, the first is that your memory goes and..........I can't recall what the other two things are!
