Test and Tag Sydney

TEST & TAG ELECTRICIAN SYDNEY

Test and Tag is the process of inspecting and testing the safety of all service electrical equipment for personal safety. According to Safe Work Australia an average of 11 workers die each year as a result of contact with electricity. Testing and tagging saves lives.

The key reason behind regular testing and tagging is to ensure the safety of people within the workplace that come into contact with electrical appliances & equipment. It has the secondary benefit of minimsing the risk of an electrical hazard. 

The AS/NZS 3760 is the Australian Standard that provides guidelines and regulations for the test and tag industry with regards to electrical safety.  After an item has been tested a tag is secured to confirm that it has been tested, along with who tested it, the test date and when it must be tested again. Retesting intervals of electrical equipment can vary from 3 months to 5 years, depending on the workplace environment where the equipment is located.

Our team of qualified electrical contractors are based in Penrith and service across Sydney.  At Fix Electrical Contractors we believe that every business should have access reliable test and tag services. We offer customised solutions to our clients, ensuring that we can meet every individual needs when it comes to test and tag.

WHO NEEDS TO TEST AND TAG?

High risk industries such as construction, demolition and mining are legislated to have their electrical appliances tested and tagged every 3 months. This is due to the harsh nature of their respective industries which are likely to cause damage to equipment at a fast rate. 

For other industries there is a responsibility on the employer to ensure the safety of its employees. Employers have a duty of care to ensure that employees and visitors to your workplace are safe from injury and risk to health. Under the new Work Health & Safety Act, Australian Standards 3760 and 3012, every business is required to maintain all electrical equipment and appliances.

The last thing businesses want is for an employee to be hurt from electrical equipment that wasn’t tested and was unsafe. Test and Tag should be become part of a regular maintenance program for business using any electrical equipment. 

OUR TEST & TAG PROCESS

  1. Visual Inspection – 90% of all electrical faults found at this stage. This is the most important aspect of testing and tagging.
  2. Electrical Testing – Testing is carried out with a Portable Appliance Tester as per Australian Safety Standards.

I’ve used Dan for a few small jobs in the past, and I needed another small job completed in the home, which was in no way urgent. I sent Dan a text message to ask his availability and within 25 minutes, I had one of the team on my doorstep ready to complete the job for me - was great timing that they were in the area! So happy with the communication received from Dan, as well as Crystal in the office and the two tradesmen who came to complete the job. Would happily recommend using the team at FIX again and again. Incredibly impressed with the great service.
