“Do I need to test and tag in my office in Salisbury?” This is one of the things we face almost everyday. All types of business in Australia that use electrical equipment are mandated to manage electrical risk and one way to do it is to test and tag. The only difference between hostile and non-hostile environments is the interval of test and tag service.
For businesses operating in a hostile environment such demolition, construction, or mining, test and tag must be done every three months. On the other hand, test and tag for offices and businesses with non-hostile environments may only be done every 6 months or 5 years depending on the type of business and equipment.
Test and tag services are valuable even in non-hostile office environments, as they play a crucial role in maintaining electrical safety and preventing potential hazards. While offices may not have the same level of inherent risks as industrial or high-risk environments, electrical equipment still needs to be regularly inspected and maintained to ensure the safety of employees, visitors, and the property.
