Appliance Testing and Tagging guarantees the safety and longevity of electrical appliances and equipment. The Local Guys Test and Tag Melbourne technicians follow the following steps to carry out testing:
Testing fire safety equipment is essential to make sure that they are accessible and effective in fire accidents.
Testing and tagging fire extinguishers must be done every 6 months to make sure that they are working well when needed in order to minimize the loss of lives, equipment, and property.
The process starts by performing a complete visual inspection to evaluate:
After making sure that everything is working properly, we tag the fire extinguisher with a reference number, which indicates that the inspection process has been performed.
Besides, we keep a record of the assessment in our database to remind you every 6 months of the fire extinguisher testing.
Fire Blanket Testing must also be carried out every 6 months in accordance with Australian Standards AS 1851 – 2010 Maintenance of Fire Protection Systems and Equipment.
The process depends on visual inspection of the surrounding areas to make sure that the right signage is displayed properly. Besides, it is important to make sure that the blanket is accessible and that both the blanket and container are in optimal conditions.
The report of the fire blanket testing will include the location of the blanket, whether it passed or failed the testing, and any suggestions to increase safety.
Residual Current Devices (RCD), also known as Safety Switches, are extremely important in workplaces and homes since they reduce the risk of fatal electric shocks significantly.
Safety switches are extremely sensitive. Therefore, they trip when there is a minor current increase on the circuit. That is why they must be tested and tagged on a regular basis to make sure that they are working properly all the time.
Our technicians perform two tests in accordance with Australian Standards to make sure that your Safety Switches are working properly.
After finishing the testing process, we provide the client with a full report including the location of the safety switch, whether it passed or failed the testing, and our recommendations to increase safety in the workplace.
