If you are a business owner it is your obligation to ensure the safety of your workplace, and that includes regular testing of your electrical equipment. Queensland workplace health and safety states testing intervals from 3 months to 5 years depending on which industry you operate in.
Test and tag is the process of inspecting and testing electrical equipment for safety in accordance with the test and tag frequencies outlined in the AS/NZS3760 Standard.
The process for test and tag is completed in two stages. First the equipment is visually inspected for any damage, then it is electrically tested to ensure there are no internal faults.
Our electrical testing and tagging includes:
After our testing is completed, any faulty items are reported immediately, and repairs are arranged if required. All test results are fully documented and supplied upon completion.
The testing and tagging intervals of equipment is outlined in the AS/NZS 3760 Table 4.
We also offer compliance testing services. This ensures your equipment is always in compliance with safety standards.
Our Other Test And Tag Services Include:
Emergency Light Testing
All emergency and exit lights must undergo a 90-minute discharge test of the battery every 6 months as stated under the AS2293.2 Standard. Records of all tests and the subsequent actions taken must be kept for compliance purposes.
A residual current device (RCD), commonly known as a safety switch, is a device that prevents dangerous electrical shocks from occurring.
Residual current devices need to be regularly tested to ensure they remain in correct working order as they will only provide ongoing protection if operational. The frequency of their testing is outlined in AS/NZS 3760 Table 4. This table outlines the in-service safety inspection, testing method and frequency.
Thermal Imaging – Infrared Thermography
Thermal imaging can find hot spots caused by loose connections and defects in components. It detects problem areas so that failure or damage can be avoided ahead of time.
Industrial Power and Automation uses the latest technology in scanners which can detect electrical faults often missed by traditional methods of testing.
We are certified in Thermographic Scanning and our qualified technicians are recognised by the Australian Institute for Non-destructive Testing (AINDT).

What are Electrical Test and Tag
Requirements on the Gold Coast?
According to WorkSafe Queensland, all businesses across the Gold Coast are required to have their electrical equipment and cords tested and tagged by a licensed electrician every 12 months. This includes items such as computers, power tools, and extension cords. Test and tag is an important safety measure that helps to prevent workplace accidents and injuries. By testing electrical equipment regularly, businesses can ensure that their employees are safe from potential shocks or fires. In addition, tagging equipment with the date of the last test helps to ensure that businesses stay up-to-date with their test and tag requirements. For more information on test and tag requirements on the coast, businesses can contact a licensed electrician or visit the WorkSafe Queensland website.
