Electrical safety test (Test and tag)
This is the process of testing an electrical item in order to ensure it is electrically safe for use. It is often referred to by other names – test and tag, electrical tagging, appliance testing, portable appliance testing and so on.
RCD test (Safety switch or ELCB)
A residual current device (RCD) is an electrical safety device that is used to cut off electricity automatically when specific faults occur. An RCD is commonly known as a safety switch and technically referred to as an Earth Leakage Core Balance (ELCB) device.
Microwave leakage test
“Electromagnetic” radiation produced by microwaves is harmful to health and for this reason regular testing will ensure microwave leakage is controlled.
Fire equipment test
Business premises require an adequate protection and maintenance system designed to detect and control the outbreak of fire. Fire extinguishers, fire blankets, smoke detectors and fire hose reels must all be kept in proper working order.
Emergency and exit light test
By the time an emergency or exit light is needed, the risk is already very real. For this reason, it is essential that all your emergency and exit lighting is periodically inspected and maintained.
Measuring the different levels of heat emitted from an object, thermal imaging identifies increased or reduced temperatures or so called “hot spots” or “hot joints”.
First aid kit
An employer conducting a business at a workplace has a duty to provide first aid kits.
Repair and replacement
Our technicians are fully qualified to repair faulty electrical equipment. If it is practical and cost-effective to repair a faulty item we will provide recommendations to our customers and carry out our repair service according to your requirements.
Reporting and record keeping
Record keeping and compliance obligations are relied upon to the demonstrate your business’s commitment to maintaining a health and safety conscious workplace.
Preventative maintenance schedule and reminder
Maintenance of facilities and equipment requires both the regular servicing of assets known as planned maintenance together with breakdown maintenance or repair on an ad-hoc basis often known as reactive maintenance.
Records and reminders
Record keeping provides useful information about the testing outcomes and form the base data on which testing cycles can be generated.

What is test & tag?
Test and tag is the process of checking the safety of portable electrical appliances to ensure compliance with Australian WHS and Electrical Safety regulations and workplace safety.
Our technician will visually inspect the electrical item for any damage, followed by an electrical test to ensure its components meet the minimum electrical thresholds. Once tested, the item is labelled with a tag to confirm that it has been tested along with displaying the technician’s details, the test date and the next due date.
The AS/NZS 3760 is the Australian standard that provides guidelines and regulations for the test and tag industry with regards to electrical safety of appliances.
What items should be tested and tagged?As a general guide any electrical item that has a flexible power lead and plugs into a power point or socket needs to be inspected, tested and tagged on a regular basis. Our technicians will be able to offer advice and support for this question in more detail on site.
