Overview

Businesses, under the current WHS legislation, are responsible for keeping their employees and visitors safe from hazardous situations when on their premises or work site. Portable appliance testing & tagging is one part of ensuring that your workplace is a safe environment.

In a workplace environment all electrical leads, computers, machinery, drills, saws, fridges, kettles and microwaves have to be tested to the Australian Standards (AS/NZ 3760:2010). The testing and tagging of electrical items is not just a once off process. Equipment will suffer from wear and tear and accidental occurrences. For these reasons, there are regulations in place that require a set frequency of testing. Depending on the type of environment you are working in, testing is carried out every 3, 6, 12 or 24 months.

 

Who needs to Test & Tag?

Whether it is in a hospital, office, manufacturing environment, building site or any other workplace safety checking of appliances and tagging will not only help you fulfil your WHS obligations but also give you that peace of mind. The best way is to use a competent technician with the expertise in portable appliance testing.

Your environment

Consideration to the frequency of the portable appliance to be tested & tagged involves a number of factors. One of the most important factors is the environment or location of the appliance.

This is stepped out in the Australian Standards AS/NZS3760:2010 with a testing frequency table that indicates the testing regime that is applicable to the environment.
