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 and AS2293.2 states testing intervals every 6 months for emergency lighting.
A business needs to have clear evacuation strategies in place for emergencies. Emergency light testing and exit light testing will ensure your business has a clear evacuation path in place in case of an emergency. Emergency lighting is essential during fires, power failure and blackouts to ensure personnel can safely and quickly exit the premises.
Emergency and exit lighting must be inspected, tested, and maintained in accordance with the AS/NZS 2293 Standard. Commercial emergency lighting and exit lighting systems are governed by the law.
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.
Emergency Lighting is a standard requirement in:
Our regular 6 monthly exit and emergency light testing procedure includes:
After our exit and emergency light 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 emergency lighting service and maintenance summary is outlined in the AS/NZS 2293 Fig 1
We also offer compliance testing services. This ensures your equipment is always in compliance with safety standards.
Our Other Electrical Compliance Testing Services Include:
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.
Test and Tagging
Test and tag is the process of inspecting and testing electrical equipment for safety in accordance with the test & 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.
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).
