Test and Tag Kooragang – How To Deal With Damaged Or Non-Complying Equipment

When it comes to electrical safety, compliance with standards is non-negotiable. We rely on these standards to ensure that the appliances and machinery we use in our Sydney workplaces are safe for everyone.

If you need a reliable test and tag in your area, you can hire The Local Guys – Test and Tag Kooragang. We provide high-quality test and tag to keep your workplace safe. There are two stages in testing and tagging equipment. First visually inspect appliances for obvious damage and then electrically test them using a multimeter or PAT tester.

After the process, your appliances will be tagged with information that you can use for the next testing schedule. This includes the name of the tester, the date of testing, the next date of testing, and whether the appliances are safe for use.

How Do I Know If My Equipment Is Safe With Test And Tag Kooragang?

You can find out whether your appliances are safe by having a professional test and tag technician to carry out suitable checks. The level and frequency of inspection will depend upon the risks or setting. For instance, industries engaged in construction, mining, and demolition need to test and tag every three months. On the other hand, offices where appliances are prone to flexing will have to test and tag ones every 12 months. Those who operate in non-hostile environments only need to carry out the testing once every three to five years.

Checks should be carried out according to AS/NZS 3760:2022 to ensure there is little chance your appliances will become unsafe. New equipment or appliances still need to be visually inspected for physical damage and will be tagged as “new in service”. The tagging process, which comes after successful testing will inform the employees regarding the status of the appliances, and whether they are still good for use.

What Should I Do With Non-Complying Equipment?

Damaged or non-complying equipment should always be taken out of service or if they can still be repaired, you need to contact a qualified person to do it. Faulty equipment that is beyond repair can cause potential electric shock or short circuits, which could lead to a fire. Therefore, the recommended course of action is to disable the equipment by cutting its power cord to prevent any accidental use.

If the equipment can still be repaired, the following are the only authorised people who can repair the equipment.

  • A licensed electrician
  • The equipment manufacturer
  • An authorised service agent

Take note that appliances that have been repaired should be tested and tagged before returning to service. This will ensure that the items are in their best condition before anyone touches them. If you are looking for a reliable service, our Test and Tag Kooragang team can definitely help you.

Is It Cheaper To Conduct Testing and Tagging In-House?

If you’re contemplating testing and tagging in-house, you will need to consider purchasing several equipment and financing training for your staff. Some factors to consider are:

  • Initial and ongoing cost for staff training
  • Testing equipment that should be calibrated every 12 months
  • Printers for tags
  • Test tags
  • Australian standards and guidance materials
  • Purchase and training in using reporting software

Of course, you also need to invest in ongoing training and refresher at least once a year as required under AS/NZS 3760:2022. Based on over 10 years of direct testing and tagging experience, we understand that the test and tag program will cost you more than outsourcing services.

An outsourced service like The Local Guys – Test and Tag Kooragang holds appropriate requirements and minimum liability insurance. Rather than spending more money on building your own team, we suggest you compare the internal cost of maintenance to hiring an outsourced contract service from The Local Guys. We are confident the results will surprise you!

The Local Guys specialise in testing and tagging appliances in different workplaces. We can assure you to do a job well done.
