What is Test & Tag?

Test and tag is a way of reducing electrical hazards to everyone in your workplace including staff and customers. Not only will it keep everyone safe by complying to correct procedures will reduce any risk of fines from breaches of electrical safety laws.

Risks of Not Testing Your Electrical Equipment

There are many dangers and risks associated with electrical equipment, these include:

  • One of the biggest dangers is coming into contact with exposed live wires which can cause electric shock and burns. Not only can this include exposed leads, but it can be electrical equipment that has come into contact with metal surfaces, floors or roofs.
  • Checking any equipment to find faults. Faulty wires and electrics can cause fires and electric shock injury.
  • Often factories and workplaces which deal with hazard materials which can ignite or are highly flammable can be a big danger. Fire and explosions where electricity can be flammable like spray paint booths and car workshops can be at risk.
  • An electrical hazard occurs when it is possible to come into contact with electricity. This can happen directly through energised parts of electrical equipment or indirect pathways such as conductive materials.

What is Required of You as an Employer?

The nationally accepted minimum standard for workplace safety around electrical equipment is Australian New Zealand Standard AS/NZS3760.

This standard requires that electrical equipment be regularly tested, and then fitted with a tag.

FAQs-header

How often do you need electrical equipment tested in Victoria?

It’s recommended all Victorian businesses test and tag their appliances at least once every 12 months, however, if you use electrical equipment frequently in the workplace, you may want to consider test and tagging more often. Building and construction businesses require testing and tagging every three months, while factories, workshops, and manufacturing businesses are required to have their equipment tested and tagged every six months.

What type of equipment do Bendigo businesses need tested & tagged?

It applies to any plug-in or portable electrical equipment as well as any machinery connected to a power supply by a flexible cord.  Also, any device that has a flexible cable and is above 50V requires testing. This can include everything from kettles and toasters to computer equipment and any power tools.

Who can perform testing & tagging for Bendigo businesses?

Under the current regulatory guidelines, test and tagging must be completed by a ‘competent expert’ in Victorian requirements. The test and tag regulations can vary from state to state. This includes someone who has undertaken a test and tag course in Victoria.
