 Frequently Asked Questions

Am I legally required to get my electrical test and tagging done?

Each business in Australia is required to have an electrical maintenance plan, which electrical test and tagging has been proven to be the best process for achieving this.

Here at The Local Guys, we work in compliance with the AS/NZS 3760 standard to ensure test and tagging is completed safely and successfully. There are many determining factors regarding the frequency of testing including the type of device, how the device is used, and the location of the device. These factors will determine the schedule on when your item needs to be tested.

In addition to the compliance with the Australian testing standard, getting your electrical test and tagging done also offers peace of mind to your business by knowing your electrical equipment is safe. This assists in insurance claims, liability claims, injury & death & even acts as an asset register of your electrical equipment.

Do your franchise partners have police clearance and working with children clearances?
