Our Processes

  • Prior to all electrical appliances testing, our administration will make site contact and arrange the visit in accordance with appropriate access times.
  • One of our experienced and licensed technicians will arrive at the arranged time and introduce themselves to the site contact.
  • Our technician will proceed with electrical testing services to all appliances, checking for any visual damage including any cuts with exposed conductors on the lead, melted plugs, damaged earth pins etc.
  • The technician will then perform an electrical safety test on the item using a portable appliance tester (PAT) and the result is recorded.
  • A test tag will be applied to all items that pass according to Australian Standard AS/NZS 3760. The test tag will show the test date as well as next test due.
  • For items that fail any of the above electrical safety tests, a danger / out of service tag will placed upon the item indicating the reason for failure. A tag will also be placed over the plug of the item, to ensure use is not possible unless removed. The item will either be removed from service and handed to the client, or the client will be made aware of the fault as soon as practical, actions regarding fails are tailored to suit the individual client. The fault will be recorded in the data and a failed report will be sent to the client.
  • Upon completion, an electrical testing register will be made available to the client in a preferred format as agreed.
  • The test records are then entered into our database and the client will be reminded when testing and tagging next comes due.
