    Who is qualified to perform electrical test and tagging?

    As per the AS/NZS 3760:2010 Standard, electrical test and tagging must only be completed by a ‘competent person’ in Australia. To be deemed as competent, an individual needs to gain a test and tag licence by completing the relevant test and tag course.

    At The Local Guys – Test & Tag, all technicians are fully qualified and complete ongoing company training to remain up to date and proficient in the latest skills and industry knowledge.

    What is electrical test and tag?

    Electrical test and tagging is the process of checking the safety of portable electrical appliances. This service is completed as a precautionary safety measure to ensure that the appliances used at a workplace are safely operating and in good working order. The purpose of test and tagging is to prevent (or reduce the risk of) electrical hazards, such as electrical shocks and fires.

    Test and tagging consists of four parts:

  • Visual inspection–The item is visually inspected for any damage or faults to the appliance or cord. The appliance must visually be in good working order to pass the test.
  • Electrical Test–Using a Portable Appliance Tester (PAT), we electronically test the item to determine if it is functioning correctly.
  • Tagging the item–The item will be labelled with a company tag to signify that it has been tested. This tag will include the test date, due date and the technician’s licence number. If the item fails the test, it will be tagged with an ‘Out of Service’ tag to clearly show the item is unsafe for use.
  • Reporting–You will receive a completion report outlining the items tested, failed items, recommendations, due dates, etc.

    Am I required to have electrical test and tagging done? Is it a legal requirement?

    As per Occupational Health and Safety requirements, businesses are required to ensure a safe work environment. Employers are required to take all reasonable steps to provide a safe, hazard-free workplace, which includes having an electrical maintenance plan to uphold their duty of care. The AS/NZS 3760 Standard outlines that regular testing and tagging of electrical appliances is optimal for creating a safe workplace.

    All test and tagging is completed in line with the AS/NZS 3760:2010 Standard. Testing for construction, demolition and mining is also completed in accordance with the AS/NZS 3012 Standard.

    In addition to ensuring your business is compliant with the Australian testing standard, having regular electrical test and tagging completed assists with insurance claims, liability claims, and even acts as an asset register of your electrical equipment. It also offers peace of mind, knowing your electrical equipment is safe.

    How long does it take to test the equipment?

        Your technician will need to conduct the visual and electrical test, which usually only takes a couple of minutes to complete each item. In order to perform the electrical test, your appliance will need to be unplugged. Thankfully, the PAT test only takes approximately 30 seconds to complete, so there is only little disruption to your work. Items such as laptops will not be affected by the test as they have an inbuilt battery which allows you to continue to work while we test the cord. Your technician will notify you before turning off and unplugging any equipment.

        At The Local Guys – Test & Tag, we can perform your testing substantially quicker than other companies due to the processes and practices we have set in place, meaning there is less disruption to your workplace.
