Testing and Tagging


Testing and Tagging

The WHS regulations in your state or territory with respect to Electrical Safety outline measures to ensure electrical safety in a workplace environment.

Australian standard, AS/NZS 3760:2010 outlines and specifies testing and tagging requirements and guidelines to ensure electrical equipment in a workplace is tested and safe for use.

The frequency of testing will vary depending on the workplace environment where the electrical equipment is located.
