When it comes to testing & tagging Lara business owners can’t go wrong with Salt Electrical’s experienced and fully-qualified team of electricians. This service, which is a core part of our business, helps keep employees, clients and visitors safe and businesses compliant with government legislation. Ignoring it is not an option.
At Salt Electrical, we work with electrical systems every day. For us, safety is paramount. We’re proud to play a part in helping to reduce workplace electrical hazards that, if ignored, can potentially cause electric shocks or fires.
Our testing and tagging in Lara involves a comprehensive visual inspection of electrical equipment and a range of tests to identify any issues. The process picks up problems including:
- Wires that are frayed or faulty;
- Electrical current leakage;
- Any damage to the appliance, tool or equipment;
- Insulation resistance;
- And problems with the earthing system.
Once we’ve finished our testing and tagging, we provide employers with a detailed report that includes any necessary repairs. Our team is also happy to schedule regular testing and tagging for your business.
So what equipment actually needs to be tested and how often should this occur? The AS/NZS 3760:2010 covers portable or plug-in electrical equipment. This can range from trusty tea-room kettles to office computers and portable electrical tools.
The testing frequency can depend on the workplace. Some workplaces might need the service every six months, 12 months or longer. Other businesses, which have a harsh working environment such as demolition, require testing and tagging every three months.
The bottom line is all businesses – from retail stores to factories – should be proactive when it comes to electrical safety. Testing and tagging is a practical and important way to keep people safe.
