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.

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.

Test and Tag NSW

What is test and tag? It is the practice of inspecting the safety of portable electrical appliances. It involves both a visual inspection and completing a test with a Portable Appliance Tester. Once an appliance has been tested, a tag is placed on it to confirm that it has been tested. The tag will show the date it was tested, give the info of who tested it and it will also give the date of when the next test is due. Read More

Testing and Tagging Saves Lifes

Every year in this country, dozens of workplace deaths occur as the result of electrocution from faulty equipment, and that’s not to mention the number of injuries and serious fires that come about as a result of equipment that hasn’t been properly tested.

The sad thing is that these deaths and injuries could have been prevented if the companies had ensured that every electrical item in their workplace had been tested and tagged.

Testing and tagging is a relatively simple process, and it doesn’t have to cause any major disruptions to your business operations. Our technicians are fully trained to provide the services we offer. They’ll arrive at your workplace, carry out all of the necessary testing and leave you with the peace of mind that your applicances are all in compliance with safety regulations.

If you have your own safety procedures in place that need to be followed, our technicians will welcome the opportunity to participate in any training you have available.

Why should I test and tag my equipment?

  • Safety. Workplace safety is not something that should be taken lightly. The main benefit of testing and tagging your electrical equipment is to ensure that your workplace is a safe environment for those you employ, which should be the first and foremost concern of any business owner.
  • Scheduling a repair before a problem occurs. If a piece of equipment becomes faulty, it could result in a hefty bill in order to get it and anything it damages replaced. Identifying any problems before they occur allows you to avoid this.
  • Decreasing your liability. When it comes to finding insurance for your company, you can significantly reduce the cost you have to pay by showing that you are taking the necessary steps to ensure maximum safety measures are being adhered to.

How often you need to test and tag your appliances will depend on a number of different factors. Fill out the form here on our site to get a free quote for testing and tagging all of the electrical appliances in your workplace.
