ARE YOU UP TO DATE WITH THE RCD AND
EMERGENCY LIGHT TESTING STANDARDS?
In line with the AS/NZS 3760:2010 in-service safety inspection and testing of electrical equipment, and Worksafe Western Australia Regulation 3.60 of the Occupational Safety and Health Regulations 1996, it is a
requirement to test portable appliances and RCDs at the required intervals and have an in-date test record of all your equipment.
Metrowest Service offers a wide range of services to help you manage your facilities and ensure you meet your building compliance and OH&S requirements.
Not only can this save lives - it is a legal requirement
Another important area of facilities maintenance that is required to be tested every 6 months is Exit and Emergency light testing, to ensure compliance in line with AS/NZ 2293.2 Emergency escape lighting and exit signs for buildings.
We make it easy for you by scheduling 6-monthly tests and completing all your compliance requirements - everything from testing to reporting.
Ensure you comply with the standards.
Residual current devices (RCD’s) are extremely important devices designed to save human lives in the event of an electrical fault. Regulations mandate that they must operate faster than 300ms in a fault situation. As such it is imperative that they be in excellent working condition and tested at the required intervals to ensure that they are performing as needed.
In commercial and industrial buildings, it is also necessary to ensure you have emergency lighting which is compliant with Australian Building Regulations.
It is also important to note, any new modifications made to building plans, must ensure the emergency lighting is altered to comply with the Australian Building Regulations.
If you do not have existing lighting or need someone to maintain and conduct regular testing on your emergency
lighting, contact Metrowest Service today.
The committed team at Metrowest will be able to effectively identify and correct faults found within your system, upholding safety for all employees and clients within your workplace.
Your logbook can be established and if existing will be updated, with all relevant paperwork maintained to guarantee your compliance with the current building regulations. We are more than happy to discuss your needs and give you a quote for services.
As part of our testing procedure, our qualified electricians test RCDs to the Australian Standard 3760 and perform a data capture. The relevant information from the various tests is recorded and efficiently reported to you.
