Test & Tag Melbourne
Why test and tag in commercial properties?Take zero chances as an employer and ensure your commercial property is compliant with Victorian OHS regulations through Melbourne testing and tagging services by All Electrics. Ensuring your workplace is tested and tagged, you are demonstrating a duty of care in maintaining a safe workplace so employees and visitors avoid unforeseen electrical injuries. In some cases, proof of a test and tag service can lead to cheaper insurance premiums - not to mention a reduction of costly ad hoc electrical maintenance costs. Our team of master electricians have been performing test and tag services in Melbourne for over 20 years and ensure that no device is left behind.
Is testing and tagging a legal requirement in Victoria?Unlike other Australian states, testing and tagging is not explicitly dealt with under legislation. However, Section 21 of the Victorian OH&S Regulations 2004 states that employers must “provide and maintain a working environment that is safe and without risk to health”. Furthermore, Worksafe Victoria encourages testing and tagging. In fact, if there is an electrical incident in your workplace, Worksafe Victoria relies on federal guidelines which call for regular testing and tagging of portable electrical appliances within the workplace.
