As well as more complex tasks… Like installing electrical hardware the right first time.

Meet electrical compliance standards with test and tag
Electrical testing is a compulsory activity for organisations Australia-wide.
There are government regulations for electricity, also referred to as Australian standards.
Just like any organisation, schools must follow Australia’s electrical standards.
School’s are active Monday to Friday, so electrical systems are in constant use.
This means electrical components in schools are prone to wear and tear…
There’s also the potential for equipment to get damaged as well.
Introducing a test and tag program at your school can make standards-compliance easy.
A test and tag session includes testing of all your equipment.
Compliant electrical gear will get a tag, with a date for the next scheduled check.
Test and tag make it easy to keep on top of the status of your electrical setup.
