Test and Tag

It is the obligation of all employers under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 to ensure that the workplace is safe for employees. This is includes electrical safety. One of the most important areas of electrical safety is Test and Tag.

Test and Tag is the safety checking of electrical appliances to Australian Standard AS/NZS3760.

We generally find that 2% of all appliances that we test are not safe. Most of these faulty appliances have the potential to cause electric shock, electrocution, or electrical fire. Test and Tag is a risk management procedure that minimises the electrical risk to workers.

amp;S legislation has made all levels of management personally liable for the safety of employees. Test and Tag is a means of risk management in the workplace. When you use our test and tag service, we provide you with an Appliance Test Log document, which forms a part of your amp;S risk management documentation.

Prevention of workplace accidents through test and tag also helps to keep insurance premiums down. Failure to comply with your obligations under amp;S legislation may also mean that your insurance company is not bound to cover a claim.
