An RCD (Residual Current Device) is the industry term for a safety switch. An RCD’s main purpose is to prevent severe electrical shocks from occurring. An RCD acts as a life saving device; it detects and halts the power in an electrical socket preventing dangerous electric currents and fatal electric shocks.

Jim’s Test and Tag Croydon

“Test and Tag” is a mandatory requirement in certain high risk industries such as mining and construction. What many business owners outside those industries may not be aware of is that these services are also available to them, and that it is highly advisable to request this service.

While it may not be a legal requirement, it will certainly put you in a better position legally if there is an accident or a fire in the workplace and it is suspected that a faulty appliance was responsible. Having evidence that the appliance was tested and certified as safe can be expected to have a significant bearing on the degree of liability and culpability that could potentially be applied in such a scenario.

This testing also helps ensure that accidents, damage, and fires are much less likely to occur, because you will have the peace of mind that comes from knowing all your appliances have been tested. Then it is simply up to your employees to make sure the appliances are operated and maintained appropriately.

A nationally famous name on a local Croydon business

The Jim’s brand is very well known in Australia, being synonymous with excellent quality and value on a diverse range of services. Of course, Jim’s is best known for the original lawn mowing and gardening business that started it all, but since then it has grown into something much bigger and has even spread to other countries.

One important aspect of the Jim’s operation is that each franchise is locally owned and operated by individual small businesses that have united together under a common brand. The only franchise chain operating in Australia with more branches is Australia Post. For customers of Jim’s, the size of the business group combined with the ease of dealing with a local small business operator offers a big advantage.

When you hire a service from Jim’s, you are getting better value.

In return that business benefits from group marketing, legal, accounting, and other services, which results in savings that can be passed on to the customer in the form of lower fees for the services provided.
