Electrical Safety and Testing

At Barwon Test and Tag we do not compromise on the safety of our staff or our clients and we are fully trained and versed in Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) codes. In Australia, OH&S regulations and WorkCover codes of practice state all employers are fully responsible for the health, safety and welfare of employees and all others in the workplace.

These guidelines state we have a Duty of Care under common law and the OH&S regulations to ensure electrical equipment or electrical appliances are safe. This also applies to any workplace where electrical equipment is used from lunchrooms through to a factory floor and if they are faulty, the business is liable. Therefore it is in your best interests to employ a professional electrical test and tag team for electrical safety.

The recommended frequency of testing varies and depends on the type of equipment and the environment in which it is being used.  Hostile environments require inspection and testing to be performed more frequently. The Australian Standard AS/NZO 3760:2010 sets all these out in table form – refer to table 4.

RCD, or safety switches, are most important and need regular testing to ensure they flick off within the required 300 milliseconds should an electrical accident or fault occur.
