Testing & Tagging of Electrical Equipment

Electrical Testing & Tagging

Testing and Tagging in accordance with AS/NZS 3760:2010

 Testing & tagging of electrical equipment is necessary for the safety of all persons using the equipment, and for employers to comply with their duty of care obligations under the various Occupational Health & Safety Laws, Regulations and Codes of Practice.

For the safety of persons using electrical equipment, routine inspection and testing is needed to detect obvious damage, wear and tear or other conditions which might render it unsafe for use.

All Fire Safe Australia & New Zealand Pty Ltd testing personnel fulfill the standard’s criteria for the definition of a “Competent Person”; our technicians are qualified electricians.
