What is Test and Tag?
Electrical Test and Tag is a process whereby each individual item of equipment is inspected for potentially life threatening faults.  These inspections are mandatory for all businesses and self employed persons for compliance with Workplace Health and Safety laws.
The equipment’s integrity then tested using the most advanced testing equipment on the market, which will in most cases identify if the item has and unseen internal faults.  The equipment is either passed or failed and data is entered into the tester to identify the equipment such as type, make, serial number and location.
Failed equipment is removed from service and can be taken to a certified electrical contractor for repair and returned to your premises usually within 24 hours.
The data  captured during testing  is transferred to a register for you to keep on hand in the event of an inspection or electrical incident.   The reporting system can be totally paperless and therefore better for the environment.

Why do I have to get Test & Tag done?
In business there are rules and regulations that govern the way in which we conduct our business.
Whether we like it or not, Workplace, health and safety laws are designed to keep the workplace free from accidents and protect the business owner from the risk of litigation.  The penalties for non compliance vary depending on the degree of non compliance and are extreme, in the event of an incident, where the person in charge of the workplace is deemed to be negligent and failing on their duty of care.
We at Norsafe are passionate about saving lives.  We will do our best to inform and free your workplace of any potentially life threatening electrical hazards, before they manifest themselves into business threatening incidents.
