Why do I need to do testing and tagging?

Testing and tagging is a preventative measure that helps reduce workplace risk. For example, a single faulty appliance can be a fire hazard or harmful to employees. Hiring a professional electrician to thoroughly check appliances reduces this possibility and helps to keep the workplace safer. As such, businesses can meet their duty of care for their staff.

What is the process for test and tag?

So, what is the test and tag process? Firstly, a trained electrician will conduct a visual inspection of your equipment. Next, they’ll conduct thorough electrical checks to ensure no problems aren’t visible to the eye. Finally, if the testing process results in a pass, they’ll provide a full-sized tag declaring the device suitable for use. In addition, Failures are reported directly to you so faulty equipment can be removed.

Is testing and tagging a legal requirement?

Testing and tagging is legally required in a few Australian industries. For instance, construction, mining and demolition have three-month requirements for testing and tagging. Other businesses don’t have the same stringent legal requirements. However, you do have a duty of care to your employees. So, testing and tagging can help to keep your business safe.
