OUR SAFETY INSPECTIONS

 

Electrical Appliance testing

Testing and Inspection is to ensure that all electrical equipment and leads are maintained in a safe and complaint condition in accordance with AS/NZS 3760 and Occupational Health and Safety Amendment Regulation 2006. Test tags are then attached to all equipment that passes and a report is made up for the client as proof of testing as required by all WHS authorities.

 

Why should you Test and Tag your equipment?

As prescribed in the Occupational Health and Safety Act, employers have a duty of care to provide a safe work environment for their employees. Part of this duty of care is to test and tag all electrical equipment. Faulty electrical devices in the office or factory represent a huge risk to anyone who may come into contact with them. Encore Electrical Contractors provide a complete testing and tagging service, providing you with peace of mind and ensuring your employees a safe place of work.

 

“It is an OH&S legislation that all businesses, contractors and sole traders operating in a working environment must have regular Test and Tagging performed on their electrical equipment. Test and Tag isn’t a complex process, the modern PAT (portable appliance tester) allows for accurate and efficient testing."

 

What is the required frequency for Testing and Tagging equipment?

Regular yearly inspections of electrical tools, appliances, power cords, extension leads and all other workplace and home electrical equipment should be carried out. The frequency of testing will be determined by a number of factors; the degree in which the equipment is exposed to and the level of risk it poses to the user(s). Factory environments require more regular inspections; every six months and in the construction and building sector, every three months.

 

All workplaces require a ‘risk management’ approach in determining the type of inspection and if necessary any testing that is required for electrical equipment. Inspections need to be carried out more frequently in an environment where electrical equipment is; during normal use, subject to adverse conditions e.g. exposure to moisture, excessive temperatures, corrosive chemicals and or mechanical damage. The risk assessment should be determined where more specific testing of electrical equipment is necessary and the frequency of such testing.

 

What happens with damaged goods in the Workplace?

When electrical equipment has been damaged or is of risk to persons using it, the employer, or person in control of the workplace must ensure that the item is immediately tagged ‘out of use.’ After inspection by a competent person, the item needs to be assessed to attain whether or not it can be repaired, or if it has to be discarded. For basic equipment like cords, a similar replacement can be used, however if any other further repairs are required, then a licensed electrician should be called upon to complete the repairs. After the repairs have been carried out, the equipment must be tested prior to returning the item to its intended use.

 

RCD Testing 

  • This test is to ensure that all sites Residual Current Devices (RCD) operate. The function of the RCD is verified by use of special test equipment. 

  • Annual tests from each outlet are performed in accordance with AS/NZS 3760. 

               

Emergency & Exit Light Testing 

This test is to ensure that the sites Emergency & Exit light system operates under power failure conditions. Tests are performed in accordance with AS/NZS 2293.2.1995. 

 

There are regulations surrounding the requirements and installation of exit lights. The Building Code of Australia AS2293 states that an exit lighting system must be installed to meet Australian Standards. It must be clearly visible to people approaching an exit and located in areas directing occupants to exits in hallways, passage ways, stairwells, lobby areas and alike and in every Level of a Class 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9 building where the Level has a floor area more than 300 m2. The lights must automatically connect to work in the event of a power failure; operating for the duration of 90 minutes independently, with highly visible letters and or symbols and located on, above or adjacent to every door providing an escape.

 

Thermal imaging:

In the Low Voltage Electrical Switchboard Industry the main cause of     switchboard fire is an undetected "Hot Spot". Thermo graphic cameras can detect hotspots that are invisible to the naked eye well before they progress into an electrical equipment failure, electrical fire or potentially a switchboard explosion.

 

Early detection of hot spots is key & may save your company time and money by assisting in eliminating unexpected equipment outages and minimizing disruptions and delays in serving your customers.

 

Thermal scanning is non-intrusive, does not require a shutdown and can be carried out without impacting site operations.
