Why should I have my appliances tested?

It is every employer's obligation under the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2000 to ensure that they provide a safe place of work for their employees.


This includes ensuring that the risk of electric shock from portable electrical equipment and appliances is minimised.


There are hefty penalties for employers and all levels of management where inadequate safety leads to the injury or death of a worker. Electrical testing and tagging forms a part of your workplace risk management system.
