Below is Table 3 of AS/NZS 3012 which outlines the inspection and testing intervals for construction sites. However, legislative requirements for construction site test and tag varies at state and local levels and needs to be taken into consideration. Also, the construction company controlling and monitoring safety on any particular site may have additional or over-riding requirements. In NSW it is common for construction sites to require all contractors' electrical tools and leads to be tested and tagged at a one-monthly retest interval.
