Frequently Asked Questions… Answered

Is testing and tagging mandatory in QLD?

Yes, test and tag of electrical equipment is required for all businesses of all sizes (construction sites, workshops, factories and offices) in QLD. This is so important because there are recorded deaths every year in Australia from faulty electrical equipment. However, these could have been prevented if the electrical gear was tested and done correctly.

How often should testing and tagging be done?

The AS/NZS 3760 standard, is the minimum for test and tagging that’s required. It’s differs for different environments, but it is recommended that:

  • Demolition, building and construction – every 3 months
  • Warehouses, factories and commercial cleaning equipment – every 6 months
  • Any environment where equipment is prone to flexing and open to abuse – every 12 months
  • Hotels, motels, hostels and halls etc – every 2 years
  • Environments where the equipment is not prone to flexing or open to abuse (server rooms etc) – every 5 years
  • Hired out electrical equipment – before every hire

Always to be complete by a licensed test and tagger (ie: electrician).

*** TIP – It is vital that the correct test tag is used based on the environment you’re testing in.

Do computers need to be tested and tagged?

Every plugin and transportable electrical device within a workplace (factories and warehouses included) need to be tested and tagged. This includes: computers (desktop and laptops), monitors, printers, photocopy and fax machines, phones (mobiles included), all kitchen appliances, electrical cleaning equipment, safety switches, all leads and cords etc.

At the end of our scrutinised testing, you will see either a ‘pass’ or ‘fail’ tag on every piece of electrical equipment depending on the testing results. Furthermore, a full report will later be emailed to you from us.
