If It Requires Electricity Then It Must Have an Electrical Tag

We believe that a simple rule of thumb that anyone can employ is one where any product that requires electricity to work should have an electrical tag. What’s more, this tag should not be hand-written, because a hand-written tag offers little certainty that the piece of equipment in question was appropriately assessed. Secondly, the tag that you have on each electrical item on your premises must be within date.

Electrical tagging in Perth is an issue of compliance for businesses. It is never enough to simply have your new equipment tested and tagged and then never do anything else with them again. Faults can turn up at any time and can result from seemingly inconsequential actions.

The good news is that here at Jim’s Test and Tag, we not only test electrical goods, but we keep you informed as we progress.
