Why is it important to test & tag electrical equipment?

We also offer fire protection testing, which helps to ensure that all your fire extinguishers are working correctly. This needs to be done every 6 months as it is one of the easiest and most effective ways to protect your business if a fire occurs.

We can also test your emergency lighting so that if there was an emergency situation, you would be able to locate the exit easily.

We can also help to ensure that your business complies with Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) standards. By getting all of your equipment and appliances tested by an experienced technician, you can be sure that all of the electrical equipment in use at your business is safe for use.

How often do the appliances need to be tested?

Electrical equipment needs to be tested at regular intervals, but the frequency of the tests will usually depend on the type of equipment, the tests that need performing, and the work environment that you are in. Electrical equipment in the construction industry has to have its equipment tested more frequently as it is more likely to get damaged because of the ‘hostile operating environment.’ On our website, there is a table that can help you understand how often your equipment needs to be tested.
