We recently completed the electrical testing and tagging to the AS/NZS 3760 standard for Greenpeace NZ. Greenpeace already had a test and tag program in place as part of their health and safety program but they wanted it reviewed as it was costing a lot of money each year.

Free Electrical Safety Compliance Audit

We offer a free compliance audit for potential customers where we can review their current testing against the requirements of the standard. For Greenpeace, the following issues were identified:

  • We found some items being tested more frequently than was required as they were in a low risk environment
  • Items that were not currently in use / in service were tested each year regardless
  • Additional unrequired tests were carried out on some items which increases the test volume unnecessarily
  • There were some inconsistencies with the testing documentation

Saving money and hassle on your testing and tagging

The above issues resulted in a testing program that was costing more that it needed to. We came up with a test and tag program for Greenpeace with the following features:

  • Hassle free testing across all locations at a time that suited and did not disrupt the business
  • Lower test volume through understanding the business, what equipment was in use and testing correctly
  • Consistent test frequencies based on the environment and risk of damage which will reduce the annual test volume
  • Assistance in policy development
  • Cable management
  • Full detailed asset register, test register and failed item register
  • Managed retesting to ensure tests remain current

This new program is now saving Greenpeace money which they can now divert to cover other costs. This is vitally important for all business let alone a not-for-profit organisation such as Greenpeace. If you feel your organisation is paying too much for your testing & tagging programme, then get in touch and for our free electrical safety compliance audit.

  • "Easy to make a booking, arrived on time, were quick, efficient and very professional. They tested around 30 items, re-plugged one, and they were done, but not until they booked us in again for 12 months time. These guys make the incredibly important job of ensuring all our electrical equipment is safe & tagged so easy, which as a business owner and employer is a huge stress reliever"
