Frequently Asked Questions

I only run a small business, am I required to Test & Tag?
As an employer or self-employed person, you have a duty of care to ensure that employees and visitors to the workplace are safe from injury and risks to health. You must, therefore, manage any safety risks surrounding electrical hazards, in accordance with the requirements of the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2000 (the Act) and the Regulation.

To support the application of a risk management approach to electrical safety, you must also comply with the specific legislative requirements outlined in clause 64 and 65 of the OHS Regulation 2001.

Clause 64 (2) requires,

• all electrical equipment that is used in construction work to be regularly inspected, tested and maintained by a competent person to ensure it is safe for use, and

• All electrical equipment at a place of work that is found to be unsafe is disconnected from the electricity supply and is repaired, replaced or permanently removed from use.

Clause 65 (1) requires,

• that an employer must ensure that a record is made and kept of all inspections and tests made and maintenance carried out on electrical equipment
