What is Testing and Tagging?
Testing and tagging can be a confusing area for any business large or small. Many people are unclear about what it involves and why it should be carried out. To help people make an informed decision about whether they require tag and testing in Melbourne,we’ve compiled this comprehensive article containing everything you need to know.
Whether you own a small business with a few employees or large company with hundreds of team members, it’s important that you follow safety regulations. The workplace environment must meet Occupational Health and Safety standards in all regards. Electrical safety is a very large part of this. Regardless of your business type, in Victoria you fall under the 2004 OH&S standard that states an employer must “provide and maintain, for employees, a working environment that is safe and without risk to health”. WorkSafe Victoria has now recognised that test and tagging should be carried out by businesses to ensure safety of their employees and comply with OH&S.

We utilise a series of processes in our OH&S electrical testing that determine any safety issues or faults. This information can then be used to implement changes that bring your business up to standard.
On average, 365 Test and Tag have found that 8% of electrical items will not pass an initial electrical safety test.

Test and tagging is now a huge industry with large numbers of companies providing OH&S electrical testing.Unfortunately, many businesses have encountered companies that provide sub-standard tag and testing in Melbourne.
