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.

Test and Tag Coburg

When you hire a professional team to complete work on your behalf, it makes sense that you receive a full and complete report at the end of the process. There is nothing more frustrating than coming to the end of such an engagement only to receive a brief note about the standards in your workplace and then to be presented with an invoice. Read More

Electrical equipment safety is essential to protect the health and safety of your employees as well as anyone else that visits your work premises. Something as simple as a faulty socket could result in injury or even death and this is entirely avoidable by engaging with a team that dedicate themselves to leading the field in electrical inspections.

How to Increase the Lifetime of Circuitry and Prevent Fires

Anyone responsible for a workplace will be familiar with the need for risk assessments and planning. However, once things are up and running, taking the time to engage in this activity can be challenging, particularly for small businesses that require every minute of every day to turn a profit and maintain their position in the marketplace.

At Jim’s Test and Tag, we believe that the time taken to complete risk assessments should be built into the monthly calendar of every single business. The reason we believe this is because the knock-on effect of an electrical issue can be devastating. Your entire business may be shut down temporarily, or long-term, which means workers face the possibility of no income. What’s more, an insurance claim against your business could grind it to a halt.

However, those that engage with test and tag inspections in Coburg can demonstrate that they not only prevent disaster from happening by scheduling regular inspections, but they also increase the lifetime of circuitry. Fire is one of the most stressful incidents that can occur to any business, so it makes sense to take the necessary precautions and safeguard your electrical equipment against this possibility. 

You may operate a simple work environment, but that does not necessarily mean that the safety standards in place are up to scratch. For example, when was the last time that you had your fire blanket tested? Or your extinguisher? Wouldn’t you like to know that these basic tools are in working order from one year to the next?

Here at Jim’s Test and Tag, prevention is our priority and we like to work with our clients to ensure that they receive a comprehensive service that is designed around their specific needs. We will talk you through what we found, make recommendations where appropriate and we’ll even action each one for you if that’s what you want. When it comes to test and tag in Coburg, there is no team better equipped to eliminate electrical risk than us. Call today to get your free quote and to book an inspection.
