Testing and Tagging is the process of inspecting and testing all in-service electrical equipment for personal safety.
Each year hundreds of lives are saved due to timely testing and tagging of electrical equipment. This not only helps in saving lives, but also can reduce the risk of lengthy insurance claims in the event of a tragedy.
Smoke alarms are now mandatory in dwellings across most Australian states, with reports that they can reduce house fire deaths by up to 60%. So, it's critical to regularly get your smoke alarm tested properly with smoke simulation to ensure that they are working properly and will protect your family.
Even if you know where all the exits are located and all the exit lights seem to be in working order, regular testing and maintenance is the only way to minimise the risk of faulty exit lights in an emergency situation, which will ultimately help to increase the safety for employees and clients in your workplace.
Whenever a microwave oven is turned on, radiation energy is produced causing the water in food to vibrate rapidly. This rapid vibration produces heat, which in turn cooks the food. The energy produced by a microwave oven can also penetrate through living tissue which is why exposure is harmful to our health.
A Safety Switch is a life saving device that can either be fixed and located in your switchboard, or portable for use in various locations. Safety Switches can sometimes be called RCD's (Residual Current Device) or ELCB's (Earth Leakage Circuit Breakers). They are designed to detect any disruption to the electrical flow through the electrical circuit, and to switch the power off should a disruption normally associated with electric shock or electrocution be detected.
At Jim’s Test & Tag, our technicians provide earth fault loop impedance services, designed to test the electrical earth of all power points and electrical installations and discover any faults within your electric circuit.
In order to ensure you and your employees’ safety and the accuracy of our test results, we will also always test the power point we use for our portable appliance tester when we provide our other testing and tagging services.
