Safety should never be taken lightly. If you operate a commercial business, all your electrical devices, fittings and appliances need to be safe to use for anyone and regularly maintained. While testing and tagging is not mandatory, it is the best way to ensure that your equipment meets legal health and safety regulations.
Testing and tagging your appliances according to New Zealand standards can detect any faults and defects before they cause serious harm or injury. The most common accidents related to electrical equipment are electrical shocks, mechanical injuries and electrical fires. The recommended minimum timeframes for testing differ for each tool, machine and appliance, and each inspection should be carried out by a qualified, registered electrician that can also undertake any repairs that testing might reveal.
Based on the environment your business is situated in, testing and tagging intervals range from every 3 months to every 5 years. Tools and machinery used in the construction, building and demolition industry need to be serviced more regularly than equipment in schools, offices or server rooms due to their more frequent use and exposure to extreme weather conditions such as dampness and heat.
If you are hiring out electrical equipment, it also needs to be inspected prior to every single hire as well as being tested and tagged every 3 months. We can set up a maintenance schedule to keep your business running legal and your staff safe. We also recommend regularly checking plugs, tools and cords for visible damage and contact us as soon as possible to fix the problem.
