Why choose us over in-house
or DIY testing and tagging?

Prior to engaging AAT, many of our clients had previously conducted their own testing and tagging program. The overwhelming majority of companies who carry out their own testing discover the cost savings just aren't what they were portrayed as being. For most companies who attempt this, the best case scenario is breaking even, and many encounter some or all of the following issues associated with DIY testing and tagging:


You can’t compare the expertise of a staff member who tests and tags once or twice a year to a technician who carries out 1,000 electrical tests a week, participates in ongoing training, assessment, feedback and receives regular industry updates. The quality and knowledge of a part-time tester does not meet that of our qualified technicians. Surprisingly, in-house electricians (despite being technically savvy) often do not know a sufficient amount of information about the relative Australian standards and legislation pertaining to electrical safety in the workplace.


Electrical safety in the workplace is a serious matter that requires a focused effort from an expert. If the internal staff member feels pressure to return to his or her usual duties, the task may become at risk of being rushed or put aside entirely. This could mean the difference between a safe and harmonious workplace and dealing with the aftermath of a tragic incident. To lumber this sort of responsibility on a person 'casually' taking care of electrical safety is not fair to them or anyone in the workplace.

Missed items

In-house testing and tagging is often 'fitted in' around the staff member's normal duties, making the testing patchy or sporadic. Even with a small gap of a day or two, un-tagged equipment is much more likely to be relocated to an area 'marked off as complete'. By carrying out the testing congruently, the risk of items being bypassed is significantly reduced.

Initial cost

There is much more of an expense than just the initial outlay of the testing equipment and course. Other ongoing expenses are: consumables (tags), asset register software, tester repairs and regular PAT tester calibrations.

Labour costs from using an internal staff member

Using an existing employee to do this work rarely outweighs the cost of an external service provider. Consideration not only needs to be given to time that it takes to carry out the testing and tagging, but also to compiling asset registers and reports, ordering consumables and the processes required for arranging testing equipment maintenance and repairs. A company recently told us that they can make more money from their employee undertaking their usual role than what it costs to engage our services. You must also consider the time difference between a 'twice a year tester' and an 'every day tester' undertaking this work. From experience it can take anywhere from 2-5 times longer for an inexperienced person to do what we do every day.


Keeping qualified staff can be an issue because often the trained staff member ‘moves on’. One option is to spend the money in training another staff member, with no certainty that they will be staying for a worthwhile time. Unless there is meticulous documentation, a changeover of internal tester can cause confusion due to varying factors such as risk assessments, interpretation of legislation, Australian standards and retest timeframes, asset IDs and asset register maintenance.
