At K&M Electrical we provide test and tag servicing of appliances. This is required is in all commercial and industrial buildings. The appliances that require safety testing are anything that plugs into a normal power point including computers, extension cord, fridge, dishwasher etc.
NZ legislation specifies the procedures and criteria for the in-service safety inspection and testing of electrical equipment which is designed for connection by flexible cord. It also applies to cord extension sets, portable outlet devices, portable residual current devices and portable isolation
This is the standard that specifies safety inspection testing and tagging protocols for compliance with the Electricity Act 1992, the NZ Health & Safety in Employment Act 1992, the NZ Health & Safety in Employment Act 1992 and WorkSafe regulations.
Frequency of Testing
The minimum frequency of testing under the WorkSafe safety standards depends on the environment that the appliance is in and the risk of a fault. Give us a call at K&M Electrical to discuss your test & tag requirements.
