OH & S Recommendations for Testing and Tagging

 

The Occupational Health and Safety Acts throughout Australia call that portable equipment/appliances, electric hand tools, extension leads, power boards and Portable  Residual Current Devices (PRCD) be tested in all commercial and industrial areas according to the Australian Standard AS/NZS 3760.

 

In most circumstances  few people know their legal requirements. The OH&S  Acts  states that if you are an employer, a self employed person, an employee, a customer engaging a trade person or for that matter , any person lending a portable appliance to another person, that you have a duty of care under the common law and OH&S Act to ensure that the equipment or appliance is safe.

  • PAT Testing

We offer an efficient, reliable and professional service to a wide range of commercial sector and residential premises.  Our PAT testing is fully compliant with the Australian Standard AS/NZS 3760 and  Health and Safety at Work regulations, which ensures that electrical appliances within the workplace meet safety guidelines.

 

  • 3 Phase Testing and Tagging

Testing and Tagging of three phase appliances is required by the Australian Standard AS/NZS 3760. Therefore it is a worthwhile investment if considered when developing and maintaining your test and tag program. All of our professionals are trained in how to correctly test and tag three phase appliances including 4 & 5 pin / 10 – 32 amp rating equipment and leads as they are unlike single phase portable appliances.

 

  • Single phase testing

 

  • RCD(Residual Current Devices) Testing

RCD’s are safety devices, they have to be tested periodically to check that their performance as trip current and time. There are a number of instruments commercially available which provide a multitude of tests.  The tests required by the Australian standards AS 3760:2003 are:

 

  • The push button test
  • Operational test

 

Once you have done regular testing and tagging of your appliances, RCD’s help to further minimise the risk of injury or death from a power leakage. That’s where RCD testing really plays an important role of ensuring electrical safety in the work place or residential properties.

 

Microwave Testing

To ensure compliance with Australian Standard AS/NZ 60335 we conduct a microwave leakage test using a microwave detection device that has been pre-calibrated to give a warning if the microwaves emanating from the equipment if greater than acceptable levels (50W/m2).
