How it works

Prior to the electrical test, a thorough visual inspection of the item is carried out by an AAT tech.

This involves a thorough examination of the supply flexible cord, plug, guards and casing to ensure visual integrity of the item and anything that may affect the safety of any person coming into contact with it.

Electrical testing proceedure

Following a visual inspection of the item (and depending on what class the electrical item is), a combination of the following electrical tests are carried out:

Earth continuity/resistance
Insulation resistance
Current leakage
Polarity

Retest intervals/ Timeframes - Table 4 of AS/NZS 3760:2010

Legislation updates

Please note under the Harmonised WHS Regulations 2012, two components of electrical safety are now mandatory.

  • The inspection, testing and tagging of electrical equipment located in a hostile environment has become mandatory.  For equipment in a non-hostile environment, a documented risk assessment is applicable as the minimum requirement.
  • Regular RCD (residual current device) testing is now mandatory for circuits with portable electrical equipment or where the socket outlets are in a hostile operating environment.
