Tag Testing Compliance & Regulations

As of April 4 th 2016, the Health and Safety at Work Act has changed. Is your workplace compliant? The Health and Safety at Work Act requires employers to protect workers and other people by eliminating or minimising risks at work. Using a Portable Appliance Tester (PAT testing) is an easy way to ensure your tools, leads and appliances are tested for electrical integrity and are compliant.

Electrical testing and tagging alongside your Health and Safety plan can make your company eligible for a significant discount on your ACC levies. Contact C.A.C Electrical Tag Testing by filling out the online form. All test and tag enquiries will be responded to quickly.

What are the consequences if electrical inspection and testing procedures are ignored?

Electrical testing is so cheap and fast that there is no excuse not to safeguard your staff by testing your equipment regularly. Failure to ensure the safety of electrical equipment may result in the death or injury to yourself, employees and customers.

Legal consequences depend on your industry and work environment. If there is an accident or fire, there are plenty of organisations that will be checking employers have taken the appropriate actions to provide a safe working environment. You may also wish to check the requirements of your insurance policy.

An overview of tag and test regulations in the workplace

Construction and demolition sites
The Department of Labour inspectors will check to see tools and leads are within the current testing time-frame, which is usually every three months, and meet the appropriate standards. For example, multi boxes need to be compliant to AS/NZS 3012.

Schools and universities
The Electricity Regulations refer to AS/NZS 3760:2010 as a means of ensuring safety with electrical equipment. The Ministry of Education requires boards to comply with AS/NZS 3760:2010. For further information on testing in schools, please click here.

Offices and retail stores
Every workplace requires its equipment to be tested, however, the frequency of testing in a tidy and well-organised office can be up to five-yearly. C.A.C Electrical Tag Testing is happy to provide an accurate estimate for your store or office together with a costing for the future which can be determined once initial testing is complete.
