Finding a service provider to test and tag your equipment is vital to your workplace’s safety. According to the OHS/WHS Act, employers have to provide and maintain a high level of safety in their work environment, so that workers and independent contracts have little risk to their health and wellbeing. This is considered a “duty of care” that all employers owe to their contractors, employees, and generally anyone who enters their workplace. That is why you should hire an experienced company to test and tag your equipment.
Test and Tag for Hostile Environments
A ‘hostile electric environment’ is the classification used to describe a workplace that consists of equipment and appliances that are (or at risk of) being subjected to harmful conditions. These workplaces expose their equipment to conditions that include exposure to moisture, heat, vibration, mechanical damage, corrosive chemicals, or dust. All of these elements have the capacity to completely ruin your equipment without you being aware unless you’re able to regularly test and tag your equipment by a competent service provider.
Without testing, you can leave yourself open to risks and dangers of safety violations, injuries, and in the worst cases, death. It’s important to be informed of the risks, responsibilities, and preventative measures one can take to avoid such occurrences.
One way to prevent injury and death, and ensure a safe environment is through a reliable service provider who will efficiently test and tag your equipment. Testing and tagging your equipment will not only protect the welfare and safety of those around you but also from any safety violations that accompany failing to comply with AS/NZS 3760 standards.
