WHY GET TESTING DONE?
It is the obligation of all employers under the Work Health and Safety Act to ensure that the workplace is safe for employees. This is includes electrical safety. One of the most important areas of electrical safety is the regular inspection and testing of electrical appliances to ensure that they comply with the safety requirements set out in the relevant regulation.
Pulse Compliance Testing specialises in the safety checking of electrical appliances to New Zealand Safety Requirement AS/NZS3760 2010.
We generally find that 2% to 5% of all appliances that we test are not safe. Most of these faulty appliances have the potential to cause electric shock, electrocution, or electrical fire.
Testing and Tagging is a means of risk management in the workplace. OH&S legislation has made all levels of management personally liable for the safety of employees. When you use our test and tag service, we provide you with an Appliance Test Log document, which forms a part of your OH&S risk management documentation.
Prevention of workplace accidents also helps to keep insurance premiums down. Failure to comply with your obligations under OH&S legislation may also mean that your insurance company is not bound to cover a claim.
Pulse Compliance Testing makes it easy for you to fulfill your appliance test and tag obligations under the OH&S Act.
