Jez Test and Tag firmly believes that the best way to achieve compliance to AS/NZS 3670:2010 is to employ the services of a professional appliance testing company, with the expertise and knowledge to keep your electrical appliances safe.
An in-house tester will often have a limited range of experience and will only perform the task a few times a year. While a professional service has developed a vast amount of experience on a wide range of appliances, and their staff are practising, honing and improving their skills and knowledge through constant application.
Most importantly, testing and tagging is more than just a method of ensuring compliance with Australian OHS and Electrical Safety regulations and workplace safety. IT SAVES LIVES!!

The phrase “Test and Tag” is a generic term that has come to be accepted as referring to the process of inspection testing and tagging of electrical equipment and appliances to the requirements of “AS/NZS 3760:2010 In-Service Safety Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment”.
A residual-current device (RCD), or residual-current circuit breaker (RCCB), is a type of AC electrical switch that instantly breaks an electric circuit to prevent serious harm from an ongoing electric shock. An RCD is often referred to as a “Safety Switch” because it is designed to disconnect the power if a person makes contact with a live part of a circuit and earth at the same time.
Portable generators give you the power you need when you don’t have access to traditional sources of electric power. Testing them for electrical safety can be difficult due to the fluctuation of the power curve when portable generators start up. Jez Test and Tag can safely perform the tests required by AS/NZS 3760:2010 to ensure your portable generator is safe to use.
To satisfy AS/NZS 3760:2010 microwave ovens are required to be visually inspected and have the standard earthing and insulation tests conducted.
However, there is another hazard associated with microwave ovens that needs to be checked before Jez Test and Tag could, in good conscience, declare the equipment safe – RADIATION LEAKAGE!
