Electrical faults are serious but can go unnoticed if not inspected regularly. If you haven't had your electrical appliances tested recently, call your local Johnstone electrician for our test and tag service, and keep your staff safe with a professional electrical test.
According to Victorian Work Hetest and tagalth and Safety regulations, all employers have a duty of care to provide a safe work environment. This includes the regular safety inspection and testing of electrical equipment. Testing and tagging, a process that involves testing the electrical output and inner workings of appliances and tagging them as safe to use. Many devices that are used frequently are more likely to need testing, as they are also more likely to be unsafe.
Ultimately, any appliance that can be plugged into electricity should be tested. This includes computers, printers, electrical cables and similar devices, all the way up to large appliances such as electric machinery, drills, refrigerators and more. Equipment should be tested every six months.

A PAT, or Portable Appliance Tester, is a device used to test electrical appliances for safety. It checks that the appliance is within safe limits, and will detect any faults or problems with the equipment’s wiring. An experienced electrician can use a PAT to quickly identify issues before they become hazardous.
Any electrical appliance that is plugged in to a power source should be tested and tagged. We test and tag equipment, tools, computers, office machinery, lighting and any other electrical devices. Portable appliances should also be tested and tagged if they are moved from one location to another regularly.
Definitely not. Testing and tagging should only be done by a qualified electrician, as their experience and knowledge ensures that the job is conducted safely. Additionally, they will have the necessary tools and equipment to do the job. Attempting to do it yourself can not only be dangerous but could invalidate your insurance policy in the event of an accident or injury. All our electricians carry a Restricted Electrical Contractors Licence to ensure they're qualified to carry out electrical testing and tagging safely and professionally.
