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 Epping

If you had to guess what the best way to prevent electrical damage occurring was, what would you say? If you believe that buying new equipment and ensuring that your workforce clean and store them appropriately once finished for the day, then you’re wrong. There is no guarantee that any brand new piece of electrical equipment is safe to use unless it has a legitimate tag that shows it was appropriately tested. Inspection of equipment is the best possible way to prevent electrical faults and damage from occurring. Read More
