Test and Tag Castle Hill
It’s essential for businesses in a range of high risk industries to regularly have electrical appliances inspected for safety. This process is called “test and tag” and it is a mandatory requirement for some types of business operations. Even for those not in high risk industries such as construction and mining, it makes sense to occasionally check to make sure your appliances are safe to operate. Read More

Jim’s is available for test and tag in Castle Hill
Jim’s is an international business that grew up right here in Australia. It started off as a simple lawn mowing and gardening service all the way back in 1982, but since then the business has really sprouted. Now the Jim’s group offers a diverse range of services to residential and business clients.
Because each Jim’s franchise is run by a local to the area where the franchise is established, and because Jim’s require each franchise operator to be properly qualified for the type of business they’re running, it makes it easy for customers to understand the value they receive when they choose Jim’s.
Supporting a Jim’s franchise means you’re supporting a local small business, but at the same time you also have the quality assurance that comes from working with a big brand that has reputation to maintain. If the reason so many people choose Jim’s is because the name is synonymous with quality and value, then it naturally follows that every Jim’s franchise must continuously provide quality and value to the customer.

Test and tag is serious business
If you don’t know what’s involved in the test and tag process, it may seem like it’s really simple. But in fact, there’s a lot of things the inspector will be looking at when assessing the safety of an appliance. It’s also a necessary service because appliances are not always safe, and in some environments, they can potentially be so dangerous that they may cause a catastrophic event.
Having your appliances regularly tested and tagged means you have some assurance that such accidents are less likely to occur if appliances are operated correctly.
The first thing that is taken into account during an inspection is to make sure the asset matches its description. If it doesn’t, that’s a really big problem that will need to be investigated. The physical exterior of the asset also needs to be examined for defects or signs of excessive wear.
Examples of things that could indicate problems include:
- cracked housing
- missing screws
- missing safety covers
- exposed wires
- damaged plugs
- serial numbers or warning labels defaced or missing
The next part of the inspection involves testing that the appliance draws current properly, with no excessive peaks or troughs.
If the asset passes inspection, it will be tagged with a colour coded tag indicating the time of year the inspection was performed. Ideally, testing should be performed at least every three months, and in some cases it must be.
