I have a good working relationship with North Power, the electricity distribution company servicing Whangarei and the Kaipara area, and I am certified to carry out any relevant testing and tagging to comply with current rules and regulations. In New Zealand, appliances used in any kind of business are required by OSH and electrical regulations to be tested according to the AS/NZS 3760 standard. This includes portable appliances, hand-held ones, IT equipment and more.
I take health and safety very seriously, so when it comes to fire safety, building compliance and equipment maintenance, RT Sparkie is the one to call. I have all the modern equipment required for today’s testing procedures which are a legal requirement in various industries, from building and construction to hospitality, medical, education and other institutions. Before going into service, each power lead, electrical tool, appliance and machinery is given a certificate of compliance and all tests are recorded for future reference if needed.
I also carry the relevant test tags needed for all equipment and gear to comply with health and safety requirements in the construction industry. Depending on the type of equipment, testing and tagging should happen at frequent intervals ranging from every 3 months for high-risk machinery to up to 5 years for offices.
Inspections also need to take place every time a tool, lead or any other piece of electrical equipment has been repaired or serviced as this might impact on its electrical safety. The same goes for electrical tools and equipment that were purchased second-hand. In order to comply with current health and safety regulations, I test all appliances for things such as voltage, polarity and insulation resistance. If anything fails the test, I will label it accordingly so it can be withdrawn from service to be repaired or discarded.
For all your commercial or industrial compliance testing and tagging needs, call RT Sparkie today and request a free, no-obligation quote. I service the greater Mangawhai area as well as Wellsford, Kaiwaka, Waipu and surroundings.
