Testing and Tagging is the process of inspecting and testing all in service electrical equipment for personal safety. Each year hundreds of lives are saved due to timely testing and tagging of electrical equipment. This not only helps in saving lives, but also can reduce the risk of lengthy insurance claims in the event of a tragedy.


Fire Extinguisher tests need to be done at least every 6 months. Fire Extinguishers are the easiest and fastest way of protecting you and your business when a fire occurs. Smoke alarms are now mandatory in dwellings across most Australian states, with reports that they can reduce house fire deaths by up to 60%., It’s critical to regularly get your smoke alarm and fire extinguishers tested properly.

Emergency & exit light testing is a 6-monthly legislative requirement,, which will ultimately help to increase the safety for employees and clients in your workplace.


Whenever a microwave oven is turned on, radiation energy is produced causing the water in food to vibrate rapidly. This rapid vibration produces heat, which in turn cooks the food. The energy produced by a microwave oven can also penetrate through living tissue which is why exposure is harmful to our health.


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. RCD’s are usually located on a switchboard but can be used portably. Every home and workplace should enlist in regular RCD safety switch testing to ensure they are working correctly.

At Jim’s Test and Tag, our professional technicians will look for the same problems that are commonplace in workplaces all around the world.

Damage to cords and cables is one of the most frequently identified issues that arise over the course of our inspections. It is so easy for cables to become untethered from their housing and when this happens, chair legs, wheels, and repeated impact from footfall can all wear down the insulation and protective materials covering the electrical wiring. Make no mistake, it may seem like a minor problem, but it could lead to something much more serious.

Beyond the visual inspection, our team has identified countless faults that stem from manufacturing defects over the years. Problems of this nature are not immediately identifiable just by looking at the equipment, and so they require testing equipment that can accurately determine whether a fault or problem exists within.

Electrical testing services give Hobart businesses peace of mind above all else. Where faults and electrical issues are not identified this can lead to appliance-related fires as well as serious electric shock, which could prove fatal.

While it is not obligatory for industries beyond the demolition, construction and mining industries to undertake this work, failure to do so could result in loss of life, and where proven that equipment was not appropriately maintained it could result in those responsible being held liable.
