AS/NZS3760: In-Service Safety Inspection & Testing of Electrical Equipment Electricity has great potential to seriously injure and kill. An employer or a self-employed person has the responsibility for ensuring the electrical equipment in their workplace is safe, regularly inspected, tested and maintained. A large part of this involved testing and tagging all equipment that is unsafe, to ensure that it is repaired.
A commercial testing and tagging system should be in place to assess the electrical equipment that is used in the workplace. If the electrical equipment operates in or is affected by a hostile environment it must undergo regular electrical testing and tagging in Perth and be maintained by a competent person.
