Ausafe Test & Tag | Electrical Testing & Tagging
Ausafe Test and Tag provide a range of services to assist in your obligation to comply with the OH&S legislation in your State or Territory.
The Occupational Health and Safety Act 1989 places a duty of care to provide a safe work place. Failure to maintain electrical equipment in a safe condition or to use equipment in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions may result in injury or death to yourself, employees, or other parties.
To meet the duty of care it is necessary to ensure that risk of injury from electric shock for all people at the workplace is reduced as far as is reasonably practicable. A method of achieving this duty is by testing and tagging electrical equipment, and implementing procedures for use of electrical equipment.
Ausafe Test & Tag can provide your business with the skills and tools to perform the necessary risk assessments and perform the necessary testing and tagging for all your electrical equipment, tools, leads, computers and appliances.
