New Service - Testing and Tagging

Howie's is proud to announce that we are now able to perform Testing and Tagging of your plug-in electrical equipment and Residual Current Devices (RCDs) in accordance with the Australian New Zealand Standard AS/NZS3760-2010.


IT'S THE LAW... Is your business complying?


As prescribed by the Occupational Safety and Health Regulations , the person having control of a workplace or access to that workplace, i.e. employer, self-employed person, main contractor, must ensure that all plug-in electrical equipment and residual current devices (RCDs) at the workplace are safe and appropriately inspected, tested and tagged and by a competent and trained person.


Under the Victorian Occupational Health and Safety Act (2004), the employer has a legal obligation to ensure that the workplace and the plant at the workplace is safe and without risks to health (Section 21). This means identifying whether there are any hazards associated with electrical equipment, assessing the associated risks and taking measures to eliminate or control those risks.

July Update

Just a quick note to let you all know how valuable your custom has been to our business venture. 

Like all small business owners, the decision to become self employed is a really big call! Despite our earlier anxiety we are pleased to say that all indications suggest that we must be doing something right.

We have had excellent clientele (thank you); you have all paid your bills promptly (thank you) and we have had no reports yet of dissatisfaction with the cost or quality of our services. 


Unfortunately for some, we have not been able to respond to your needs immediately - hopefully you will understand that as a small team we do our best to look after multiple clients and guarantee that any the wait will be worthwhile in terms of customer service, price and quality.

Once again, thank you very much for supporting our business.
