If the following is any indication then Gordon Anderson thinks there is room for improvement.
Recently I engaged Jim’s Test and Tag on behalf of a client to check out their electrical tagging as I had found a number well over due for retesting.
What Jim's Test and Tag team found was that was the client's contracted electrician had made all the electrical appliances in the staff room, shop, and office due for retesting on a 6-monthly cycle.
The Electricity (Safety) Amended Regulations 2011 testing schedule states that many only had to be tested on an 12 monthly or a 5-year testing cycle.
Electrical tagging has for many businesses been a contentious issue of why, do I have to do it? Well it is good risk management policy but no more frequent than the law stipulates. No need to pay every 6 months for what could be a 5 year requirement!
