Appliance Test and Tag Services
By law, portable appliances cover all electrical equipment that needs to be connected to a generator or fixed electrical installation to function. Appliances that require a plug, socket, or flexible cable also qualify as portable electrical appliances and must undergo regular Test and Tag Townsville services.
Test and Tag services involve detailed inspections of electrical appliances to ensure items are well maintained and safe to use. These two elements are what PAT testing is – and the testing and maintenance help to prevent electrical accidents and disasters from happening.
Rolly take these services seriously. We help you to prevent electrical accidents in the workplace and also keep you in compliance with your insurance coverage requirements. Our staff will take you through all the stages of a full PAT test to include a visual inspection and an electrical safety inspection. We use the latest PAT testing equipment and clear labelling procedures to help you keep track of future maintenance dates scheduled.
Why Do Appliances Need Testing?
Any portable electrical appliance that is handheld or that is not part of a fixed electrical installation needs PAT testing.
Our Appliance Test and Tag Townsville services will check that all portable appliances within your premises are safe to use, helping you to avoid potential disasters such as electrical fires or injuries to workmates.
We ensure that your organisation or business meets all electrical Government health and safety requirements, keeping workers and assets within your premises safe while avoiding the invalidation of your equipment insurance cover. This invalidation can occur if you continue to use non-PAT tested electrical appliances.
Equipment covered in our Test and Tag Townsville services include but are not limited to:
* IT equipment, e.g., PCs, photocopiers, and printers.
* Stationary appliances, e.g., vending machines or computer servers.
* Portable electrical appliances, e.g., kettles and electric drills
Handheld appliances, e.g., blow dryers.
* Cables and chargers, e.g., computer cables, and drill and phone chargers.
All equipment operating on a voltage of 110V and above, in addition to all 3-phase equipment should also be regularly PAT tested and passed.
We shall work with you to carry out combined inspection procedures for any equipment critical to your operation that cannot power down during a PAT test such as computer servers and other critical electrical systems. We can also do Test and Tag services at the next available shut down for maintenance purposes, should the currently scheduled test prove impossible.
Professional Test and Tag Services
Rolly has highly skilled electrician teams that will first perform a visual inspection and survey of all appliances in the building before carrying out any PAT testing works.
Equipment subjected to Test and Tag Townsville procedures must first be in good condition, and free of any tampering or damage, with the correct fuse fittings.
Safety tests must then be conducted on all equipment for the safety of both the electrician and staff. These tests look into the Insulation Resistance, Protective Conductor, and Earth Continuity qualities of each appliance.
We will then finish with a functionality check. Our electricians make sure to power up all appliances tested to ensure that they are working as required, and then tag them with a pass or fail label, offering professional recommendations for the next steps.
