Testing and Tagging of Electric Equipment
All changes to AS/NZS 3760 due to the 2010 rewrite are implemented by Knoble Arts Test & TagIf you are an employer, you have a duty of care to ensure that employees and visitors to your workplace are safe from injury and risk to health. Under the OHS Act, AS/NZS 3760:2010, every business is required to maintain all electrical equipment and appliances to a safe standard. This means that all 'plug-in' type equipment must be regularly safety inspected, tested and maintained. Knoble Arts Electrical Testing is dedicated to providing you with the best service at the most competitive prices.
Why is Electrical Testing and Tagging of appliances so important for my businesses?
Whether you run a construction site, a retail store, a kitchen or a factory, electrical safety is paramount. In Victoria all levels of management are legally responsible for workplace safety, and a documented risk assessment approach is required. This includes assessing the risk presented by portable electrical appliances. Appliance Testing is a strategy which minimises the risk of electrical shock to workers.
Each appliance is inspected, electrically tested, and then tagged (labelled) at regular intervals. A record of these tests is kept as part of your overall OH&S risk management documentation.
Knoble Arts are committed to helping you to comply with your obligations under the OH&S Act. We offer test and tag services which comply with Australian Standard 3760.
Your inspection and test results are recorded and you will be provided with an electrical Test and Tag Log, which forms a part of your risk assessment documentation. The record keeping system can be used as an effective asset management tool for non-electrical assets as well.
This electrical testing and tagging procedure and record keeping ensures compliance with AS/NZS 3760, and documents your commitment to electrical safety in the workplace.
Knoble Arts makes it easy for you to implement a test and tag strategy by offering after-hours and weekend services.
