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.

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.

Testing and tagging electrical appliances is a mandatory requirement in many industries, especially in those with a high degree of risk such as mining and construction. In fact, even where it is not mandated by law, it is still sensible for any business to periodically have a test and tag service performed. This reduces the potential for future liability, as well as helping to detect problems with your appliance that may lead to injury, fire, or loss of life.

Jim’s Test and Tag in Bankstown is now available to businesses in the area to have the safety of electrical appliances tested and certified.

For test and tag in Bankstown call Jim’s

Jim’s has been a legendary success in Australia. Started in the 1980s as a simple lawn mowing and gardening service, it has grown to become an international franchising group with a huge range of diverse services available for residential and commercial customers.

Each franchise within the group is an independent venture run by locals, but with the backing of a big corporation behind them. This offers a significant advantage to the customer, both in terms of the value we can offer and the assurances they will have.

These advantages are what has caused the Jim’s group to grow so rapidly and become so strong. Today the only franchise in the nation which can boast a larger size is Australia Post, and they certainly don’t offer as many services as Jim’s.

When you do business with us, you get service from local professionals with local knowledge. Having access to a group marketing pool and group professional services such as legal and accounting provides the means by which we can keep our costs down and pass on savings to our customers that would not otherwise be possible.

Test and tag is a vital part of keeping your business healthy

Electrical appliances are undeniably useful, but they’re also one of the leading causes of accidental fires. About 1000 Australians are also injured every week according to ACCC statistics reported in the March 2019 edition of Appliance Retailer magazine, and about 780 Australians die every year due to operating faulty appliances.

It could be reasonably assumed that in the majority of cases the people operating those appliances are unaware that it’s not safe to do so. That’s what makes the test and tag service so essential. By having products tested on a rolling basis, you can be sure that they should be safe to use if operated correctly. If by some chance an accident were to occur anyway, you’d be in a much better position legally if you can prove that your appliances were tested and certified for safety before the accident occurred.

The opposite is also true. If you do not have your appliances tested, and you allow them to be operated, and they subsequently cause damage of any kind, you could potentially face the maximum penalty under the law. This includes not only civil liability, but the possibility of criminal prosecution as well.

Compared to that, test and tag is very cheap and gives some peace of mind. It may even be able to earn you a discount on your insurance, depending on the attitude of your insurer.
