Testing and Tagging is the process of inspecting and testing all in service electrical equipment for personal safety.

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.

Do you need to test and tag your electrical equipment in Port Macquarie?

We provide a range of testing services because we understand how important it is to keep your business at OHS compliance so that it is safe for your employees and any visitors on your premises. All of your electrical equipment needs to be inspected and tested at frequent intervals so that you can be sure that it is safe to use and has no damage. Some of the services we provide are:

  • Testing & Tagging Electrical Equipment – This is the inspection and testing of electrical equipment at different intervals depending on the type of equipment and the kind of work environment. Equipment used in a hostile working environment, such as an industrial environment where it is more likely that the equipment will get damaged, needs to be tested more often than equipment in a non-hostile operating environment.
  • Fire Protection Testing – Your fire extinguishers must be tested at least every 6 months as they are a vital component for protecting you, your employees, and your business if a fire were to occur. Your smoke detectors also need to be checked as they are effective at reducing the amount of fire-related deaths in buildings. We will also check that your other fire protective items, such as fire blankets, are working correctly so that if you ever need them, they can protect you properly.
  • Emergency Lighting and Exit Sign Testing – In an emergency where all the power was cut, you need to have emergency lighting so that you can safely reach the exit and evacuate safely. We can perform tests on your emergency lighting so that you know that they are in working order should you ever need them.
  • Earth-Fault Loop Impedance – This service is designed to test and discover any faults to the electrical earth of all of your electrical installations and power points. We test this using our portable appliance tester so that we can ensure the accuracy of our test results.
