What is testing & tagging?
Our electrical testing services involve inspecting and testing electrical equipment or supply units according to the AS/NZS3760 standard. Testing & tagging should occur at regular intervals dictated by the national standard. Only technicians with experience, and strict adherence to the current safety standard should carry out testing & tagging works.
A safety technician will come to your place of business and assess each piece of nominated equipment. Depending on the nature of each device, one of our team members may make recommendations about the environment or suggest a replacement. A tag will be attached to the appliance/equipment and dated so that each user is aware of when the item was tested.
Why is electrical testing important?

Testing & tagging of electrical equipment and appliances is an essential preventative workplace safety measure. Through electrical safety testing at regular intervals, you can be aware of the hazards in your business, and ensure you have strategies in place to manage them.
