Jim's Test & Tag
Why do you need to test and tag your electrical equipment?
It is well understood that New Zealand businesses must take steps to ensure their workplace is safe for everyone, including staff and customers. However, what is not always clear is what ‘must’ be done and what is ‘good’ to do. We want to help you understand not only what you need to do but how it should be done so that you can make an informed decision.

What is involved in testing and tagging?
You don’t need to be an electrician or Health & Safety professional to understand how your testing and tagging should be carried out. The AS/NZS 3760 Standard details how the testing should be carried out for all electrical appliances and equipment (excluding medical appliances) that connect to New Zealand’s low voltage power supply. This includes single phase, three phase items and residual current devices (RCD). To find out how your testing should be conducted in accordance with this Standard, please click here or visit our HOW page.
