All electrical equipment in the workplace, whether in the office or factory, construction or maintenance use, is subject to constant use often resulting in damage and wear. Conducting regular inspection of your electrical appliances, tools and equipment is essential in ensuring a safe working environment.
Australian standards and regulatory authorities require electrical test and tagging to be conducted before first use and as per the recommendations in AS3760-2010 In-Service Safety Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment. Outsource Safety provides an electrical test and tag service to all our clients ranging from small businesses to leading multi-site organisations across Australia.
We provide you with a detailed report and asset register outlining the items which passed and any items which have failed and are to be removed from service. Where possible, items that require basic repairs may be repaired once approved by the site contact.

Electrical hazards can lead to deaths and injuries such as shocks and burns. They can also lead to shipboard fires, explosions and the disabling of essential equipment and services on board. Incident data reported to the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) indicates that hazards to safety and personnel resulting from the use of electrical equipment continue to be a major concern.
