Test & Tag

Under the electrical safety act all businesses must provide regular testing of electrical appliances. This is through the process of Test and Tag where appliances are tested to ensure they are in safe working condition.

What is Test and Tag

Test and Tag is the process of testing portable electronic appliances and Residual Current Devices (RCDs) to ensure they are electrically safe. Once an appliance or RCD has passed successfully, a test tag is applied listing test date, expiry date, license number and a number that is assigned to that item. If it fails the item will be removed from service and tagged out of service for repair.

It's the law

It is an OH&S requirement of the Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking (PCBU) to provide a duty of care and a safe work environment for ALL employees and tenants. This includes regular testing of portable electrical appliances and RCDs in accordance with AS/NZS3760. Regular testing periods for different industries can be found below.
