Electric Shock – Test and Tag Maitland NSW

Did you know that workers can be at risk of electric shock anytime? Electric shock occurs when a person comes into contact with an electrical current. It can happen in a number of situations, such as touching a live electrical wire or accidentally making contact with a faulty electrical appliance. This occurrence is a serious hazard that needs to be prevented.
As a workplace manager, you have the duty to ensure that electrical appliances are properly maintained and tested, and that workers are trained in electrical safety procedures. Regular test and tag inspections can help identify faulty electrical appliances before they become a hazard, reducing the risk of electric shock in the workplace.
At the Local Guys – Test and Tag Services, we provide a range of electric shock prevention services. Our certified technicians can accurately assess electrical hazards in your workplace and provide proper testing for your portable electrical devices. The following are the different electrical safety testing that your business can go through.

RCD Safety Switch Testing

An RCD (Residual Current Device) safety switch is an electrical safety device that is designed to quickly shut off the flow of electricity in the event of an electrical fault. They are commonly used in homes and workplaces to protect people from electric shock and other electrical hazards. Regular testing of RCD safety switches is essential to ensure that they are functioning correctly.
Here is an overview of RCD safety switch testing:

  1. Visual inspection: The first step in testing an RCD safety switch is to conduct a visual inspection of the device to check for any visible signs of damage or wear. This may include checking the wiring and connectors for signs of corrosion or damage.
  2. Push-button test: The next step is to conduct a push-button test. This involves pressing the test button on the RCD safety switch to simulate a fault condition and ensure that the device is able to quickly shut off the flow of electricity. When the test button is pressed, the RCD safety switch should trip and cut off the power to the circuit.
  3. Timing test: The final step in RCD safety switch testing is to conduct a timing test. This involves measuring the time it takes for the RCD safety switch to trip after the test button is pressed. The time delay should be within the specified range, which is typically between 10 and 50 milliseconds.

Earth Safety Switch Check

Earth Safety Switch is a type of circuit breaker that is designed to quickly shut off the flow of electricity in the event of an electrical fault, particularly when there is a potential difference between the earth and the conductive surface of an appliance or a device.

The Earth Safety Switch works by detecting any imbalance in the electrical current flowing through the active and neutral wires of an electrical circuit. If there is a difference between the current flowing through the active wire and that returning through the neutral wire, it indicates that there may be a leakage of current to the earth, possibly through a person. When this occurs, the Earth Safety Switch is triggered and quickly disconnects the power supply to prevent the risk of electric shock or electrocution.

    Portable ApplianceTesting

    Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) is a process of inspecting and testing electrical equipment to ensure that it is safe to use. In Australia, PAT is an important part of workplace safety regulations, and it is a requirement for employers to ensure that all electrical equipment in the workplace is safe and regularly maintained.
    The purpose of PAT is to identify any electrical faults or defects in portable electrical equipment that could potentially cause injury or harm to users. This includes equipment such as power tools, extension cords, and portable heaters. During PAT, a trained technician will visually inspect the equipment for any signs of damage or wear, and then perform a series of tests to ensure that the equipment is safe to use.
    PAT typically involves the following steps:

    1. Visual inspection: The technician will conduct a visual inspection of the equipment to check for any visible signs of damage or wear, such as frayed cords, loose connections, or broken switches.
    2. Electrical testing: The technician will then perform a series of electrical tests on the equipment to check for any electrical faults or defects. This may include tests to check the resistance of the equipment and the insulation of the cords.
    3. Tagging: Once the equipment has passed all tests and is deemed safe to use, the technician will attach a tag or label to the equipment to indicate that it has been tested and when it is due for retesting.

    PAT is an important part of workplace safety in Maitland NSW, and it is important for employers to ensure that all portable electrical equipment is regularly tested and maintained to prevent the risk of electrical hazards. This test should be conducted by a trained technician who has the necessary skills and equipment to perform the tests accurately and safely. Depending on the equipment, its usage, and the working environment, your appliances may require testing at least once every 12 months.
