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.


Even if you know where all the exits are located and all the emergency & exit lights seem to be in working order, regular testing and maintenance is the only way to minimise the risk of faulty emergency & exit lights in an emergency situation. 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.

Electrical Testing Launceston

Without electricity, our ability to deliver services and products would be seriously impeded. It is the necessary component in any business, without which nothing is possible. However, with electricity comes risk. Whether this is consciously considered on a daily basis is unlikely, depending on the industry that you work in, but regardless of how low-risk your workspace is, it is still essential to ensure that you do not take for granted the power that courses through your electrical lines and the potential it has to compromise all of your efforts.

Two Types of Work Environments – Same Compliance Requirements

Where workplaces are concerned, there are two kinds of operating environments.

A hostile environment is one in which the electrical equipment or supply cords are exposed in a manner that could result in damage. This increases the risk factor for those that work in that environment.

Non-hostile work environments are relatively organised, clean and the potential for damage is a lot lower, which reduces the risk level for those who work in them.

No matter which of the two environments your business falls into, seeking electrical testing ensures your Launceston operation is compliant with the prevailing rules and regulations and safeguards the lives of those who you employ.

Naturally, industries that require the use of power tools and high energy use equipment throughout the course of the day are at a greater risk of experiencing wear and tear that could compromise their appliances, and so it is essential that regular testing is scheduled.

Here at Jim’s Test and Tag, we work with all of our clients in this regard. Once we complete testing on your site, we can arrange to remind you when your next test date is approaching, and together we can plan an appropriate time and date on which we will complete the work.

This takes the hassle out of managing this necessary requirement and affords you the peace of mind that comes with knowing that all of your equipment and appliances are safe to use.
