Testing and Tagging is the process of inspecting and testing all in service electrical equipment for personal safety and in accordance with the Australian Standards. It involves visually inspecting the appliance for any damage, followed by electrically testing and tagging the appliance, providing you with a comprehensive report and ensuring all electrical appliances are used safety.
An RCD (residual current device) is the industry term for a safety switch. It detects and halts the power in an electrical socket preventing dangerous electric currents and fatal electric shocks. RCD testing is the process of safely “tripping” your RCD to ensure it will operate quickly should there be an electrical incident. Regular RCD safety switch testing ensures all RCD’s are working correctly.
Plug top replacements
Plugs and extension sockets may be replaced and completed onsite after a test and tag service and visual inspection has been completed by our team.
Portable Appliance testing
Protect your tools and equipment. If you have an appliance that has a plug that is intended to be connected to a wall socket or generator, it qualifies as needing to be PAT tested. This can include items such as electric drills, monitors, printers, Microwaves, PCs, kettles and larger items like photocopiers, vending machines and others.
Emergency Lights & Exit Signs Test
All emergency lights and exit signs need to be inspected at 6-monthly intervals. During the inspection, a trained technician will test the lamps and replace any defective lights. Each device will also undergo a discharge test in which a technician will turn the battery charger off and simulate a power outage for a duration of 90 minutes.
Fire Alarm Break-Glass Testing
Undertake regular fire alarm break glass testing while on site as an added service to your testing and tagging business needs. We will ensure your fire alarms are monitored and maintained to national standards and report any requiring replacement or repair.
Fire extinguisher testing and maintenance
Fire extinguisher test and refill services should occur at the following intervals: All portable and wheeled fire extinguishers need to be tested every 6 months. Pressure testing and refills should be carried out at least once every 5 years.
