In The Workplace – SAFETY and COMPLIANCE

The importance of regular Electrical Safety inspections of electrical tools, appliances, power leads, extension leads and all other workplace and home electrical equipment should not to be taken lightly.


Each year in New Zealand there are dozens of workplace related deaths caused by electrocution and many more serious injuries or destructive fires. The stats for the home user are worse. Most of these occurrences of injury, damage or death could have been prevented with regular Test and Tag inspections.

Employers have a duty of care (under HSWA 2015) to ensure that employees and visitors to the workplace are safe from injury and risks to health. You must therefore manage all risks associated with electrical hazards, in accordance with the requirements of the AS/NZS 3760:2010. You must apply a systematic risk management approach to eliminate or control the risk of electrical hazards.

Having completed a risk assessment, you can then implement a range of control measures including:

  • routine visual checks
  • regular inspection
  • maintenance
  • repair
  • replacement
  • use of residual current devices (RCDs)
  • and, where warranted, testing of identified electrical equipment.

Under Workplace Health & Safety Legislation some businesses, contractors or sole traders operating in a working environment must have a regular test and tag performed on their electrical equipment in accordance with AS/NZS 3760:2010 to ensure compliance under HSWA 2015.

Just as important is safety at home. For continued peace of mind and to ensure the safety of you, your family and of your personal assets, it is important to have electrical appliances and equipment checked on a regular basis. While it is not mandated by legislation, proof of regular testing will certainly be invaluable evidence of due care, in the case of an unfortunate Insurance claim having to be made in the event of a fire or accident being caused by faulty equipment.

Express Test & Tag South Christchurch are certificated operators using approved and calibrated equipment to ensure that the appliance/equipment is electrically safe for professional or personal use.

We test in accordance with the Australia and New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 3760:2010 “In-service inspection and testing of electrical equipment” which is the reference document for compliance with the HSWA 2015.
