Using the best portable appliance testers available, we are able to ensure that your portable appliances are safe. We understand the challenges of your business and are here to help you be compliant. Safety should not be a compromise. We’re based in Hamilton servicing Waikato, Auckland, Bay of Plenty and the surrounding areas. Get in touch with our team to book.
We use the Seaward Prime Test Elite Plus portable appliance testers to test your single and three phase equipment.
This high-quality testing equipment provides in-depth results and a deeper understanding of the electrical safety of your appliances. In conjunction with this, our software provides data for each item tested, displaying all the tested values.
Once each item passes testing, we attach a barcoded tag with a unique number that also indicates the date tested and due date for the next inspection. If any appliance fails our test sequence, we will advise you of the appropriate course of action.
On completion of the testing, we generate detailed reports for your records. These reports are also held by us on a data base for 7 years, which is a legal requirement.
As part of the Health and Safety at Work Act, you are required have adequate fire protection in your workplace. We offer a free consultation to identify the fire protection needs specific to your business.
All businesses must have fire extinguishers and accompanying signage throughout the premises, including in the lunchroom, work vehicles and common staff areas. If your business is a restaurant or café, you may also require a fire blanket or a wet chemical extinguisher. This fire equipment should be tested at least once per year.
On completion of the testing, we will provide you with a “Detailed Fire Register”, a compliance report which contains all the details of each fire asset. You may be requested to provide this report by Work Safe or an insurance assessor in the event of a fire.
