We understand the modern frustrations of hiring a tradesman or subcontractor...

Why not flick us a message?

All workplaces must ensure their electrical appliances and tools are tested and tagged for safety compliance as failure to do so may be seen as negligence on the part of the employer as they did not take all practicable steps possible to ensure safety in the case of a serious incident occurring.

Testing and tagging electrical appliances is one useful way to check electrical equipment is safe. It’s not mandatory but what is legally required is that equipment is electrically safe and maintained in a safe condition.

Electricity (Safety) Regulations 2010, regulation (26) states one way to verify the safety of appliances that owners make available to their employees, contractors or are hired out, is to have the appliances tested and tagged in accordance with standard AS/NZS 3760.

Testing and tagging doesn’t guarantee future electrical safety, what it does is provide a snapshot of how safe the appliance is at the time of testing.
It is up to the person conducting the business or undertaking to decide whether to test and tag.

See Worksafe New Zealand’s website article ‘Testing & Tagging Electrical Appliances‘ for ​further information on the requirements for your business.
