How safe is your place? --‐ Quick, Reliable & Professional
Portable Appliance Testing.

Any electrical device connected by a relocatable connection to a power outlet must be regularly tested. This includes power leads, extension cords, power-boards and portable RCD's.

Workplaces and public places must adhere to strict OH&S regulations to ensure employees remain safe from such hazards caused by appliances and tools being over used. Testing and tagging of portable appliances is now standard practice in many parts of the world, and was a strategy introduced to reduce hazards causing workplace injuries.

How often do I need to test?

Australian Standards requires you to test and tag your electrical equipment (class I and class II)
When an appliance needs to be tested varies according to what type of workplace and the type of environment within that particular workplace. This can be anywhere between 3 months to 5 years.

  • Construction Work Sites are considered a hostile work environment and need inspection, testing and tagging every 3 months.
  • Factories, workshops, places of manufacture, assembly, maintenance or fabrication require inspection, testing and tagging every 6 months.
  • Equipment used for commercial cleaning requires  inspection, testing and tagging every 6 months as well.
  • Environments where the equipment or supply cord is subject to flexing in normal use or is open to abuse or is in a hostile environment call for inspection, testing and tagging every 12 months.
  • Hotels, motels, boarding houses, halls, hostels, accommodation houses and the like have need of inspection, testing and tagging every 24 months.
