Safety needs to be at the core of all our businesses, and testing and tagging is a big part of keeping safety standards high. It’s essential you test and tag your electrical equipment in order to remain compliant to Australian regulations, including the Workplace Health and Safety Act 2011, which stipulates workplaces need to be kept safe for all employees. 

Glenco test and tag electricians are trained to inspect your electrical appliances and ensure they meet Australian Standard AS/NZS 3760. They’re professional, qualified, fully trained experts in testing and tagging.  We offer industry competitive price and a customer focused service, so no matter the size of your test and tag job we can get it done for you.

Glenco have been operating in Sydney as testing and tagging electricians since 1988. We’ve got the experience and all the necessary tools to ensure your test and tag work gets done efficiently and effectively. Give us a call today on 02 9700 9996 to find out more about our test and tag Sydney service. 

Why Do You Need to Test and Tag

Electrical safety is extremely important in any workplace, and testing and tagging is necessary to keep offices, commercial properties and work sites safe. This regulation is governed by Trade and Investment and is a mandatory requirement for these types of properties to ensure that all equipment being used in these locations has been tested and is safe to be used for Workplace Health and Safety purposes. If you are a homeowner or live in a residential property you’re not required to test and tag your appliances in these sites.

Keep Your Team Safe with Tagging and Testing

When we test and tag Sydney workplace electrical items, we always find a certain percentage that aren’t working correctly. Faulty appliances won’t be able to perform their intended function correctly. This can cost a lot of money to rectify and could cause a significant amount of damage to your brand or reputation if the problem isn’t nipped in the bud. 

They can also present a threat of electric shocks, electric fires or even electrocution. Irreparable health problems or death are events you want to protect your staff from at all costs.  Preventing these kinds of outcomes is the single biggest reason to regularly tag and test your equipment. Having a Glenco tagging and testing expert properly inspect and test your items on a regular basis 

Test and Tag Regulations

Regulations for the test and tag industry are provided by the Australian Standard AS/NZS 3760. As well as providing general guidelines, it stipulates who is qualified to test and tag and what kind of intervals between test and tagging should exist. Our Glenco electricians are fully familiar with this standard and implement its guidelines when they’re test and tagging Sydney businesses. 

The duty of care of business owners is another reason to regularly test and tag electrical appliances. You’re required to make your workplace safe for all employees, and ensuring your portable electrical equipment is in good working condition is important for this. You’re liable for the safety of your employees as stipulated in OH&S, so a workplace accident with equipment that hasn’t been tested and tagged could have extreme consequences. 

How Often to Test and Tag

The frequency of your test and tagging varies according to the industry you’re operating in. Industries such as construction, mining and demolition need to have their appliances tested every three months, because these are intensive industries that place high demands on their electrical tools. 

Other industries may only require test and tagging to be performed every five years. For some industries its not a legislative requirement, although it always falls under the business owners duty of care to ensure their staff working environment is kept safe at all times. 

If you’re unsure about the test and tag requirements of your property or business, contact us today. We’ve been tagging and testing electrical appliances in Sydney for over 33 years, and can answer any questions you may have. Get in touch on 02 9700 9996.

I would like to thank Glenco for their wonderful customer service, from quoting through to installation of my air conditioner, the process was seamless. I would especially like to thank your technicians Shareen and Liam. They were efficient and very quiet, but most importantly they left my home cleaner than it was when they arrived. I would highly recommend this business, well done Glenco.

Shareen and Keenan installed a new ducted AC for our house. They were on time, professional and cleaned up after. The installation went very smooth and we are extremely happy with the result; just in time for summer! Nathan Farr from the electrical team came and ran the new AC circuit. He was very friendly and communicative of how he was going to run the cabling and it was all done in a very neat manner. Thank you team! I would highly recommend Glenco and will be using them again in the near future!

Glenco were very responsive to my request and booked my job immediately. Communication and updates were effective. Rohan (Glenco technician) effectively completed installation of five ceiling fans. He maintained social distancing and wore a mask the whole time and cleaned up when the job was complete. He was very professional and I would recommend his services in the future.

I have been overjoyed to find an electrical company that was reliable, timely, and who carried out the work required to a very high standard. My technician was very personable (clearly loves his job) and exact with the installation, so that the range hood and downlights look great. What a treat!
