Frequently Asked Questions

Got a question you need answered? Take a look at some of the questions we get asked most by our prospective clients:

What items should be tested in my workplace?

Typically any electrical item that has a power lead that is plugged into a power point needs to be inspected, tested and tagged on a regular basis.

For some types of equipment or electrical items, the frequency of testing is more often where there is a higher safety risk or where there is likely to be greater use and wear. For example, a tradesman or a carpenter has a higher risk factor and needs to have their electrical equipment tested more often than a computer in a standard office.

There are some types of items and equipment like “hard wired” electrical fittings that do not need to be tested and tagged. A qualified Jim’s Test & Tag Franchisee will be able to offer advice and support for this question in more detail on site.

What areas of my workplace do I need to test and tag to remain OHS/WHS compliant?

It is essential to test and tag all portable and non-portable electrical appliances with a flexible and detachable supply lead in your workplace. Portable appliances are located in more areas than you may realise; like the office kitchen or construction areas.

What kind of typical hazards will Jim’s Test & Tag find in my workplace?

Our technicians come across many electrical dangers and hazards. Some of the most frequently electrical safety hazards include faulty wiring, RCD’s and earth systems. There are many different kinds of workplace hazards it is best to get a professional to inspect them.
