At Jim’s Test & Tag, we undertake a visual inspection of all your appliances first, to identify any obvious problems. We then test all of your appliances with a Portable Appliance Tester (P.A.T) with pre-set tolerances, which ensures the integrity in our process.
If the appliance passes the electrical testing process, it is then fitted with a durable, non-reusable tag. If it fails any stage of electrical tagging, the technician will consult with the client as to the process needed to repair or dispose of the appliance. Once we have tested and tagged all of your electrical appliances, you can rest assured that you have done all you can to minimise any electrical shock risks in your workplace.
The client is provided with a computer generated log book and asset register, detailing the appliances tested and the results of the tests undertaken. The asset register also records the make, model and serial number of the appliance during the electrical testing process.
In the workplace, we can test safety switches (RCD ’s), fire extinguishers, fire blankets and hose reels along with smoke alarms, while microwave ovens can be tested on request for radiation leakage and power output. We can also test safety switches, smoke alarms, fire extinguishers, fire blankets and microwave ovens for the domestic market.
The frequency of electrical testing is based on the minimum requirements as per Australian/New Zealand Standards and how hostile the environment is. To help you determine the appropriate frequencies, your technician can also perform an electrical risk assessment.
We believe that our quality certification plays a significant aspect in assisting us to ensure customer satisfaction. Our externally audited, quality program exposes our whole business model to the stringent processes associated with ISO 9001. Our scope for this program includes how we select and support our franchisees and how our franchisees provide the services to our external clients. We believe that we are the only specialist tagging organisation to have achieved certification to this international standard.
Many of our larger customers have an expectation that their service providers have achieved this certification and enjoy the benefits in many aspects of their business. Regardless of size, our franchisees treat all our customers with equal care. This means that our smaller to medium size clients can also enjoy the benefits of our quality service.
During the course of this year, industry will see significant changes relating to Workplace Health and Safety across Australia. Jim's Test & Tag are extremely well placed to assist the Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking (PCBU) with their obligations relating to prevention, protection and compliance.
