Testing time frames vary within different industries depending on what the equipment is and the environment that the equipment is used.Australian StandardsAS/NZS 3760:2010 contain a guide to testing and tagging time frames however a risk assessment must be made to determine exact time frames. See Table Attached

To perform a full electrical test yes we need to turn equipment off this should only take a few minutes per item. Our experienced operators try to work with as little disruption as possible. In extreme cases we understand that some items cannot be turned off in that scenario a thorough visual is performed and notes added to the report as to why a visual was done.

Costs will be based on the amount of equipment to be tested and the environment and location that we are testing in metro, Country or Regional. Please call us to discuss your specific requirements.

The Occupational Safety and Health Act 1984 (OSH Act) and Mines Safety and Inspection Act 1994 require electrical equipment at workplaces to be safe and not exposeWorkers to hazards.
