Testing and Tagging is the process of inspecting and testing all in service electrical equipment for personal safety.

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.

The Electrical Testing Professionals in Queensland

We are firm believers in the need for regular servicing and inspection where electrical equipment is concerned.

Our specialist technicians deliver the kind of thorough service to afford you the certainty that your equipment poses no threat and are safe to use.

What to do When You Need the Highest Electrical Testing Safety Standards

Faulty electrical equipment leads to many different problems. Whether you consider them an inconvenience that costs you time and money, or a hazard that could lead to the injury or even death of a staff member, there is no doubting the fact that they have the potential for serious disruption.

There are plenty of tradesmen offering their services to workplaces all over Australia. However, when you need electrical testing at your Queensland premises, someone that is just capable of doing the job is no substitute for professionals that rigorously adhere to the standards that make work-life safe for everyone that visits.

If you are seeking the highest safety standards, then professionals that will only generate a tag once a piece of equipment has been thoroughly checked make the most sense. Hand-written tags should raise a red flag in your mind since they offer no real indication that the piece of equipment was competently tested and checked.

Electrical faults are not always visible. In some cases they are, but in many more, a manufacturing fault goes undetected until a problem arises. That’s why new equipment and old equipment need to be tested regularly so that no damage that has occurred will make it unsafe to use.
