Test and Tagging

Corporate Industry Testing

The current Australian Standard, AS/NZS 3760:2010 specifies the tests required to be conducted in order to confirm the electrical safety of an item. Whilst the Australian Standard does not mandate a Portable Appliance Tester (PAT) should be used to conduct these tests, the use of a PAT remains one of the most comprehensive and efficient methods of ensuring an items electrical safety.

Contact Group Electricians use the latest PAT devices when undertaking testing on your electrical appliances. 

Please note under the WHS Regulations 2012, the Inspection, Testing and Tagging of portable electrical appliances located in a Hostile Environment has become mandatory with a documented risk assessment applicable for items in a Non-Hostile Environment.
