At Corton Audio we not only offer live audio services, we also have a state of the art electrical Testing & Tagging service.
Our electrical testing & tagging services are undertaken using the latest and best in testing instruments available world-wide from leading brands including Wavecom Instruments and Fluke.
All Inspection, testing and tagging is carried out in full compliance with AS/NZS 3760:2010 (and latest amendments) by professionally trained and competent technicians with a keen eye for electrical safety and the safety of those within your workplace or organisation.
We have the ability to undertake testing & tagging for both small and large organisations, workplaces and schools... Whether you only require a few items completed or a large complete contract with thousands of electrical appliances... We have the instruments, training and team to make it happen!
We offer a complete on-site service, meaning we come to you, to insure as little down-time to the day to day running of your business, school or organisation as possible. We also offer out-of-business-hours services, allowing testing & tagging to be completed where we can cause as little disruption to your day as possible making it a convenient solution to you.
How long does it take for us to complete testing & tagging?
Generally it is possible to inspect, test and tag one item every 5 or so minutes as a guide only (sometimes less), however it depends on the actual appliance being tested, if any repairs are required, whether our staff need to dismantle the appliance (unplug equipment) etc in order to complete the inspection, test and tag.
How does Corton Audio charge for testing & tagging services?
As a guide we normally charge per appliance (tag), however this does not include workshop, repairs or equipment (plugs, sockets, cable etc), labour and cost associated with repairs is always in addition to the per-tag/appliance cost.
We often stock general items such as brand-new power boards, extension leads, IEC leads, clover leads, power adaptors/packs and other common items, this means if something fails we may have it in stock insuring the down-time to your business is again minimised considerably. If an item fails and we have it in stock, our team can swap it immediately for a brand new item (where we currently hold the item available on-site).
Is there a time-frame in which testing & tagging is required to be carried out?
Yes, Inspection, Testing & Tagging shall be undertaken as per outlined in AS/NZS 3760:2010.
This ranges from every 3-months to 5-years depending on the working environment and equipment location. Alternatively your risk assessment may deem a shorter timeframe then those outlined in AS/NZS 3760:2010, however the maximum timeframe must not exceed those outlined within the standard (AS/NZS 3760:2010).
We offer testing of all items inclding single and three-phase, 10A, 15A, 20A, 32A etc.
We also offer additional testing including:
- Portable RCD Safety Switch inspection and testing;
- Microwave radiation testing;
- Electric blanket safety checks and testing;
- Electrical appliance maintenance and cleaning;
- Plug and socket replacement for all types of portable electrical equipment.
We have a dedicated automated reminder service, automatically reminding our clients when testing & tagging is becoming due for re-inspection, test & tag.
We currently have electrical testing & tagging contracts with a number of organisations, businesses and organisations throughout North Central Victoria including government organisations, small businesses, trade services, community organisations and schools.
All our electrical testing & tagging services meet (if not exceed) those outlined within AS/NZS 3760:2010 which shows a strong commitment to electrical and workplace appliance safety.
We are more than happy to provide you with copies of our public liability certificates of currency, formal training, risk assessments, JSA’s and other documentation as requested or required.
