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 Victoria

At the end of every business year companies review the statistics. No business owner wants to see accidents and injuries, or even fatalities, on their premises. However, given the ubiquity of electricity, sometimes faults occur and people get injured. A company that fails to properly look out for its employees can quickly get a bad reputation, which can make it very difficult to attract valuable prospects to even consider applying for jobs. As such, it is imperative to see the assistance of test and tag professionals. Read More

At Jim’s Test and Tag, the immediate benefit that you gain when you secure our services is peace of mind that your appliances will be properly assessed to the rules and regulations that prevail.

Many test and tag clients in Victoria that we have dealt with in the past were surprised to learn that their appliances were not actually working properly. They had perceived no issues, and nothing seemed visibly wrong with them. Many of the issues that arise with electrical problems are in the inner mechanisms. Faults can arise as a result of a fall, or improper use over time.

As such, while the appliance might be working today, it could become a serious problem tomorrow. That said, if you believe any of your appliances are not up to speed, then now’s the time to take action and give us a call. This also applies to brand new equipment, which should never be assumed to be in perfect working condition before use.

Finally, whether you recognise it in your statistics or not, but faulty electrical equipment can have a negative impact on your utility bills. More electricity is required to power faulty appliances and where many of your tools are in need of upgrading, this can heap on extra costs that you could so easily avoid through regular testing.

What Your Electrical Tags Say About You

Here at Jim’s Test and Tag, we believe that you can learn a lot about a company just by the tags that are on their electrical appliances. Hand-written tags speak to work completed by tradesmen or those that do not hold a professional standing. Tags that are out of date imply that the safety standards adhered to in your company need to be seriously addressed. Even if you have been diligent about testing time can creep up quickly and so it may be necessary to book a professional immediately. 

Fortunately, all you have to do for the best test and tag service in Victoria is pick up the phone and request a no-obligation free quote. From there, we can plan our visit and make sure that your business is fully compliant and affords your workforce a safe place to do what they do best.
