Electrical Testing & Tagging.
Electrical Safety testing and tagging is required to ensure no-one is at risk of receiving an electric shock as they use electrical appliances. SAFE perform a safety test on all electric appliances that plug into a 240V power-point; if the equipment passes the test it is tagged as safe to use. If it fails the test we will recommend the appliance is repaired or disposed of.
The Australian Standard that the test is performed under is AS/NZ 3760 (LINK). Testing frequency is determined by means of a risk assessment in accordance with the electrical code of practice Managing electrical risks in the workplace (LINK). Based on the risk assessment testing is completed 3 Monthly, 6 Monthly, 12 Monthly, 24 Monthly or 60 Monthly.
SAFE uses the latest machines to complete the electrical testing and tagging. On the first test we add a completely separate asset ID barcode label, this label is not removed and is referenced on the report. By completing the inspections this way we can ensure that all items previously tested are retested and nothing is forgotten or missed. This can also be helpful for internal asset tracking.
Our testers have a printer connected and automatically print a test tag when the test has passed. This saves time and enable us to complete testing and tagging at a very competitive rate. It also means that items must be tested and cannot just be tagged.
