Too many NZ businesses are at risk because they ignore the importance of appliance testing. Any risk of a fire starting from faulty equipment is too dangerous to leave to chance. That is why having proper portable appliance testing in Tauranga and anywhere else in New Zealand is critical.

The dangers of fire and electric shock from electrical appliances are very real. As an employer, it is your responsibility to ensure you have the best testing and tagging procedures in place. Maintaining your electrical appliances goes hand in hand with protecting you and your employees. It isn’t just an important step, it’s a legal requirement.

The types of portable appliance testing in Tauranga

A portable appliance is any electrical appliance that can be moved around. It’s easy in a factory environment to forget that this also applies to any appliances in the kitchen or tea room.

There can be a wide range of portable appliances in the home including portable heaters and vacuum cleaners to toasters, microwaves, hair dryers, and more. In the end, whatever appliance plugs into an electrical socket needs to be inspected and tested regularly.

Portable appliance testing applies to everything that is:

  • already in use,
  • new and being used for the first time,
  • returned to service after repairing or servicing,
  • purchased at a second-hand shop, or
  • hired for temporary use.

Remember, portable appliances also include things such as cables and extension leads, power boards, adapters, and portable RCDs (safety switches).

To be sure that you have your appliances and cabling properly tested and tagged, see the experts with the best in training and professional testing equipment.
