Test and Tag

Test and Tag

Would Ya!® Enterprises specialises in the safety checking and test and tag services of electrical appliances to Australian Standard AS/NZS3760. Our qualified test and tag technicians come to your workplace to inspect your electrical appliances and tools.

How it works

Appliances are first bar-coded, then given a thorough visual inspection, prior to electrical testing with a portable appliance tester. The results of the appliance inspection and testing are recorded electronically into our Asset Register Database.

On completion of testing and tagging at your workplace, we provide you with a comprehensive Appliance Test Log (Asset Register), which is your written record of every appliance that we have inspected. This record is provided to you in a .PDF format document, and as an Excel spreadsheet if you wish.

Why choose us?

We are professional, reliable, qualified and insured. We’re relied upon by numerous large organisations in the commercial, government, education and healthcare sectors. Contact us for more information.

On-site RCD testing service and RCD tester sales

Would Ya!® Enterprises can test both portable and fixed RCDs, which are also known as ELCBs and the Safety Switch. Our qualified technicians use an RCD Test Instrument such as the Wavecom TnT Plus to accurately test both the RCD Times and the RCD Ramp Currents.

The RCD Trip Time is a measurement of how long it takes the RCD to respond when a dangerous situation occurs. The RCD Test Instrument simulates a fault, and records the operating time of the RCD in milliseconds (ms). This test therefore demonstrates how quickly the RCD will respond to a dangerous situation. RCDs generally respond in under 30ms, however up to 40ms is acceptable under certain circumstances.

During the RCD Ramp Current Measurement, the RCD Test Instrument simulates an earth leakage current (which represents a dangerous fault), however this time, the instrument starts the leakage current gradually, and "ramps" the current up over say 15 seconds. The test instrument then records the earth leakage current in milliamperes (mA) at which the RCD trips. This test demonstrates how sensitive the RCD is in detecting a dangerous situation. Generally, RCDs must respond at 30mA or less, although some special RCDs are set to respond at either 10mA or 100mA. 

RCDs do fail over time and Australian Standards require that RCDs be tested regularly. This includes both regular ‘Pushbutton Tests’ by the user as well as regular full testing by qualified technicians using calibrated test instruments.

Test and tag asset register database

Would Ya!® Enterprises provides thorough records of every appliance that we test and tag. Our qualified test and tag technicians place a test tag and a barcode label on each appliance that we test. The barcode label stays on the appliance for the life of the appliance. The test tag is changed each time the appliance is re-tested. The barcode label is the unique Asset ID number and all information about the electrical tests is recorded against that Asset ID. 

We record information about the type of appliance, make and model, its location, the date of testing and tagging and which technician tested it. This record forms a part of your WHS risk management documentation that you should keep on file and have available for safety audits.

This information is all stored electronically in our Test and Tag Database, which is like an electronic logbook. On completion of your job, we send out your Appliance Test Log in a PDF file and Excel spreadsheet if you wish. This Asset Register is also useful for your asset management and insurance requirements.

On-site access for electrical testing

Reasonable access to your appliances and your workplace is required. If some appliances are difficult to access, you may need to arrange to have someone available to move equipment or furniture so that the technician can physically inspect your appliances. Depending on your location, you may also need to provide a place for our technician to park their vehicle. If your business premises are difficult to access, we may make special arrangements to pick-up, test and drop-off your equipment. Where access to your appliances or your premises is difficult, additional charges may apply. Please discuss any special requirements with us when you contact our office.
