Appliance Testing (Test & Tag)
Test & tag is the common name for safety testing of electrical appliances. It’s a great idea to get your home appliances tested for peace of mind. In commercial or industrial contexts, it’s a legal responsibility.
At K&M Electrical, we provide painless, affordable test & tag servicing.
This means as a business owner, contractor or manager, you need to have a certified electrician issue a current, valid safety ‘tag’ for everything with a flexible cord, including extension cords and multi-boxes.
Test & tag service ensures compliance with the Electricity Act 1992, NZ Health & Safety in Employment Act 1992, NZ Health & Safety in Employment Act 1992 and WorkSafe regulations.
Pricing is from $4.50 per tag, with a minimum of 20 items tested at a time. We will provide repair quotes for any failed items.
Frequency of Testing
The duration of validity for any particular safety tag depends on the environmental and risk factors it faces under the WorkSafe safety standards. We’re well versed in the different factors that affect testing frequency, so give us a call at K&M Electrical to discuss your test & tag requirements.
|SUMMARY OF MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS||TEST & TAG AT LEAST EVERY:|
|Building or construction site and other hostile environments||3 Months|
|Workshops, factories, place of work and clean equipment||6 Months|
|Environments where the appliance or cord may be flexed or damaged||12 Months|
|Bedroom areas of rest homes, hotels, motels and hostels||2 Years|
|Environments where the appliance or cord will not be flexed or damaged||5 Years|
|If an appliance is relocated, then the new environment test requirements apply|
Once the appliance gets tested, a tag will be attached to the cord stating the date, re-test date, and the tester’s details.
K&M Electrical comply with all NZ regulations.
Please call us today to discuss your test & tag requirements for your commercial or industrial building.
