Test & Tag North Brisbane

With notoriously strict workplace health and safety standards in Queensland, auditors can impose hefty fines for every violation they find. Our job at North Lakes & Surrounds Electrical is to protect you, your employees, and your business with a professional test and tag service. Everything we do meets strict Australian Standards, WH&S and AS/NZS 3760 requirements not to mention, all of our technicians have received Nationally Accredited Training and Cert 2 in Fire Safety.

What Is Testing And Tagging?

Test and tag is the process of visually and electrically checking the safety of portable electrical appliances. According to the Electrical Safety Regulation 2013 (Qld), as an employer, you must regularly inspect and test specified electrical equipment and safety switches in your workplace.

The rules and regulations differ from trade to trade (e.g. construction standards for testing and tagging differ from service and office standards) which is why only a qualified and experienced tradesperson can legally test and tag electrical equipment. It is an offence under the Electrical Safety Act 2002 to repair electrical equipment unless you have the appropriate electrical work licence. Once tested, the item receives a durable tag with the testing date and next scheduled test and inspection date clearly visible. 

How Often Should Test And Tagging Be Done?

As mentioned above, each industry has their own set of rules and regulations for testing and tagging. At North Lakes & Surrounds Electrical, we are equipped and trained to assist with construction, manufacturing, office and service work industries. For double insulated manufacturing work and service work (if no safety switch) 12 months is the maximum term between each test and tag.

For non-double insulated manufacturing work and construction work (transportable structures, fixed and transportable equipment and construction wiring) it is 6 months. Office work (if no safety switch) can have a maximum term of five years. There also intervals for testing type 1 and type 2 safety switches.

I had the team visit my place to install power into my garage and fix up other niggling issues discovered after taking ownership. I was very impressed with the way they installed power into the garage. The downlight solution they put into the kitchen was neat and tidy and made the kitchen feel more open. Fitment of Clipsal iconic light switches and power points have really modernized the look at the house and are a great addition.

North Lakes & Surrounds Electrical are always on time and very professional. We have used them several times, most recently for installing outside power points on a separate fuse. Also they installed our ceiling fans with lights, bathroom 3 in 1s and changed power points. Also they supplied and installed a range hood in our kitchen. They always clean up before they leave and overall we are more than satisfied with their work they perform and the reasonable rates they charge. We would never use anyone else and would not hesitate at all to recommend then to anyone.
