Is It Time You Got Tested And Tagged?

You've probably heard of the term “Test and Tag” but just to be sure that all our customers understand the importance of this procedure, and how it can prevent unnecessary and unfortunate accidents from taking place, we thought it would be a good idea to focus this latest blog on the subject.

So what exactly is Test and Tag?

We live in a world where we are heavily reliant on electrical appliances to make our lives easier and in some cases, safer, as well as to inform and entertain us. Unfortunately without due care being paid to the safety of such appliances and devices accidents can and do happen, and in many cases these could have been avoided had those products been tested and tagged. 

Only licensed technicians can carry out test and tag which involves visually inspecting electrical products as well as carrying out electrical tests on in-service equipment to prevent injury to anyone. Equipment includes portable appliances as well as fixed equipment, depending on the manner in which it is connected to a source of electricity.

What a Test and Tag Program consists of:

  • ‍A visual inspection to check for any obvious problems
  • ‍A series of electrical tests to ensure the item is safe
  • ‍Tagging of equipment to show users that it has been passed as safe in compliance with AS/NZS 3760:2010 together with the date on when the item should be tested again
  • Provision of a Log Book and Detailed Asset Register

Why you should get your electrical equipment tested and tagged?

Prevention is always better than the consequences of dealing with an accident or fatality and by maintaining a regular plan of preventative maintenance along with electrical checks, you know that you've done all you can to prevent accidents from occurring and from any legal claims which follow. You'll enjoy peace of mind knowing that your family, staff and colleagues are safe. Furthermore it keeps all appliances, tools and office equipment in perfect working order, which can save you money in the long run.

What sort of items need to be tested?

Practically any item which needs plugging into a power point both either in the home or the workplace should be inspected on a regular basis. These include such things as:

  • ‍Office equipment and computers
  • ‍Hand held, portable, and stationary items
  • ‍Flexible cords of fixed equipment
  • ‍Smoke Detectors
  • ‍Emergency and Exit lights
  • ‍RCD's (Residual Current Devices)
  • Power boards and cord extension sets

Great company to deal with - Static are one of the top rated contractors our company uses. I have also used them personally for Airconditioning work at my property. Nathan was very professionally, tidy and informative. Would not hestitate to call them again.

Luke Ehrenberg

Terrific service. Installers came on time, were friendly and efficient, and even cleaned up after themselves !! Absolutely no hesitation in recommending this company, and will definitely use them again

Anne Hattersley

Jeremy arrived on time, in fact he was a little early, he was clean and well presented in his work uniform and very courteous. He asked a few questions about what our air con was doing, to work out what he needed to do, then got stuck into it. His knowledge and attention to detail was impressive and by the time he was finished, our air con unit looked like it was brand new again. Before the cleaning out of the indoor unit, the fan was hardly blowing any air at all, but once the cleaning was finished and with the unit reassembled, Jeremy turned it on to test everything and the fan was now blowing like a force 10 gale, absolutely brilliant, exactly what we had hoped for, we are now all set for the next summer season. We will absolutely totally get Jeremy back at the end of the next summer season to clean the unit again. Top job we can highly recommend this company.
