7 Reasons Why You Should Test And Tag Sandgate This Year

Not everyone sees the importance of testing and tagging appliances in their office. This is most especially true when a piece of electrical equipment is relatively new. Unfortunately, this poses risks to everyone in the office regardless of its size. We believe that it is crucial to perform tests and tags on electrical appliances, whether old or new.

According to the Australian standard AS/NZS 3760:2022, all employers must follow the testing schedule. Offices where appliances are prone to flexing must test and tag every 12 months. After all, no one wants to be electrocuted in the office while using a simple microwave oven.

Here at The Local Guys – Test and Tag, we cater to different types of offices across Sydney. Our goal is to help you achieve an electrically safe workplace while complying with the standards. However, if you’re still missing to test and tag, here are some reasons why you should comply with the standards this year.

#1 Increased risk for electrical shock

Over time appliances can develop electrical faults. Imagine using the same microwave oven for more than five years. You will never know when they break until they stop working or worse, explode. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Appliances, including microwave ovens, can develop electrical faults over time due to wear and tear, which can potentially lead to dangerous situations like fires or explosions.

Additionally, everyone is afraid of electrical shock. It can cause muscle spasms, burns, and even death. As an employer, you have the duty of care to ensure that everyone is safe in your workplace.

#2 Faulty appliances can increase the risk of fire in the workplace

Faulty electrical appliances can increase the risk of fires. As appliances age, they are more prone to damage and develop potentially dangerous faults, such as short circuits, which may result in serious consequences like fires. Additionally, inadequate testing and tagging of electrical equipment can further heighten the vulnerability to incidents that could cause fires.

Testing and tagging office electrical equipment regularly is crucial to prevent potential fire hazards. The team at The Local Guys – Test and Tag Sandgate has extensive experience in testing and tagging all types of electrical equipment, including microwave ovens. We also prioritize providing high-quality safety measures.

Fire damage is a significant risk in the workplace when defective items are present. Electrical shorts can quickly ignite flammable materials such as wallpapers and cabinetry, resulting in fires.

Neglecting minor physical damage in your appliances can lead to further problems and impact the functionality of outlets, switches, and other components in your electrical system.

Damage can occur when faulty appliances send surges of electricity through surge protectors, overwhelming their capacity and rendering them ineffective. This leaves connected devices vulnerable.

#3 Increased difficulty in managing electrical risks in the workplace

The increased complexity of modern workplaces and homes has brought about a corresponding rise in the difficulty of managing electrical risks in the workplace. Every breakroom now has multiple appliances such as refrigerators, heaters, microwave ovens, air fryers, electric grillers, and even more. To add to the risks, there are computers, laptops, CCTVs, and other electronic devices in your office that could develop defects without you noticing them.

#4 Legal and Compliance Issues

Not testing and tagging can lead to legal and regulatory non-compliance. In Australia, employees must fulfill their duty of care to everyone in the workplace and keep compliance records. Following AS/NZS 3760:2022 as a minimum standard will highlight this obligation. Failure to meet these requirements can result in fines and legal consequences for your workplace.

#5 Increased Downtime

Unchecked faulty appliances can disrupt productivity. Equipment failures due to lack of testing can result in downtime as employees wait for repairs or replacements, leading to delays and potential financial losses.

#6 Higher Maintenance Costs

Avoiding regular testing and tagging can lead to higher long-term maintenance costs. Unattended issues can worsen over time, requiring more extensive and costly repairs or replacements when they are finally addressed.

#7 Reputation Damage

Ensuring workplace safety is an important factor in maintaining a company’s reputation. Neglecting to test and tag appliances can negatively impact the perception of a business, among both employees and clients, potentially resulting in reduced trust and credibility in the market.
