We don’t hold you up, we just get it done so that you can get back to the job at hand.

Getting stumped? Check out the section below for the answers to the typical questions we’ve encountered from our clients over the years.
AS 3760 enables persons responsible for the safety of electrical equipment in the workplace to instigate an inspection and testing programme to achieve that aim. It also enables persons undertaking the inspection and testing to carry out the task in a safe and effective manner.
This standard defines the In-service safety inspection and testing of electrical equipment.
SafeWork SA refer to this Standard for the testing of electrical equipment in workplace.
It defines the minimum inspection and testing intervals. Click on the ‘Test Period’ link at the bottom of this page for more information.
If any electrical equipment we test is found to be faulty we tag it with a ‘Failed’ tag.
At the conclusion of the testing the responsible person in the workplace will be require to sign a form acknowledging the failed equipment will be taken out of service. It will be then up to this person to decide whether the faulty item is to be repaired or discarded.
Some minor repairs can be provided by Asset Test and Tag on site to enable the faulty item to be retested and put back into service.
The Australian Standard states that a licenced electrician, or a competent person who has the knowledge and training to undertake the testing.
Specialised equipment such as a Portable Appliance Tester (PAT) would be needed as this is designed to do the testing efficiently with a focus on operator safety while carrying out the tests.
We use state of the art portable ‘Seaward Systems’ each consists of a Seaward Elite Tester (which performs the test and store the data) and a Zebra tag printer.
The data from the testing is downloaded to our software which in turn provides you with detailed test results.
A Residual Current Device (RCD) is a safety device that is used to provide additional protection to the operator of hand tools.
Modern switchboards are fitted with fixed RCD’s, they can also be built into power points or be a portable unit which plugs into a power point.
Usually earthed or ‘Class I’ equipment has lots of exposed metal which is why it requires earthing.
Many modern hand tools and appliances are double insulated which means they do not have an earth, they are generally identified by the words ‘Class II’
The testing procedure is different depending upon if it is earthed or double insulated.
We have a minimum charge of $120 (plus GST) which will generally enable us to service a small office of say 2 people.
Our charges are based on the number and type of tests that are done. As the scope of the job grows generally the charges reduce when there is a high quantity of tests involved.
After discussing your needs we may decide to do a site inspection prior to providing the quote, this way we get the opportunity to see if there is any additional work in providing the service – this way there are no surprises for either party.
When the service is provided in a remote location we reserve to right to charge a surcharge.
When a business takes a strong stand on friendly and reliable customer service, it will inevitably grow. As Asset Test and Tag grew, the founder John Jones knew that he needed to find someone who shared the same values and dedication to getting the job done as painlessly as possible.
With that in mind, John decided to bring his son Brenton into the company, and Asset Test and Tag became a family business.
As the business continued to grow, we have introduced other team members and his other son, Damon into the team, allowing John to keep up with the growing demand of businesses that want all of their Testing and Tagging done by the friendliest and least disruptive company in Adelaide!
