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.

Had Russel and Anthony come out to work on installing 8 new ethernet ports, as well as some power points, and terminate it into a storage closet. Absolutely stoked how it turned out and I couldn't be happier. Will definitely engage with this company in the future for other jobs.

We had a fair bit of work that needed to be completed from replacing all down lights to adding new plug points and ensuring smoke alarms were up to code. Communication was clear from quote to the moment they arrived on site. Isaac and his team were great, informative and thorough. Highly recommended.

Rob from North Lakes Electrical deserves some serious kudos! We have had so many jobs for him, and he has scheduled us in without any issues. We’d like to thank Rob for adding more down lights to our kitchen space, wiring up our pool LED disco lights, finding us some lights for the staircase that fitted our brief (and installing them), installing a fan in our 5th bedroom, hooking up the TV on our deck, sorting out the power for the outdoor fridge, installing appliances in our kitchen & I’m not even sure I’ve captured everything. Rob is reliable, timely, creative, honest & an extremely decent human being who will get your job done with precision in a timely manner. 100 stars for Rob from North Lakes Electrical!
