Test and Tag

Keen Test and Tag have your testing and tagging service in Adelaide under control.

Australia’s WHS regulations state that electrical equipment used in the workplace must be regularly inspected and tested. At Keen Test and Tag, Adelaide clients will have benefit of Keen being able to provide these services to help your workplace meet all current standards in this area. With our knowledge and expertise, our testing and tagging service can allow you to maintain your safety requirements.

At Keen Test and Tag, any appliance identified as a potential hazard is isolated and identified as non-compliant. Keen Test and Tag will then provide all clients with a computer generated logbook and asset register, detailing the appliance tested and the test undertaken. The asset register also records the make, model and serial number of the appliance undergoing testing. This documentation and asset register will form part of the compliance documentation required for your businesses WH&S controlling regulations.

In Australia, newly purchased electrical appliances are deemed ‘safe’ and the supplier of the equipment is responsible for its initial safety. While new equipment does not need to be tested, it does require a visual inspection for any apparent damage. Where appliances are deemed to be compliant, the Owner or a Responsible Person within the business should ensure that it is tagged in accordance with the standard.
