Electrical installations require on-going inspection, testing and maintenance in order to keep working safely.
Australian Standard AS3019 – Electrical Installation – Periodic verification sets out the requirements for inspection, testing and verification for various parts of electrical installations.
Many customers ask Sydney Electrical & Data how they should go about ensuring the safety of their electrical installations. Often, we implement an AS3019 inspection and testing regime, which we cater to the customer’s individual requirements.
An AS3019 inspection and testing regime may include:
- Visual Inspections of switchboards, wiring and earthing systems.
- Earth continuity testing
- Insulation Resistance testing
- Thermal Imaging
Electrical Installation Testing can be carried out on a frequency that is tailored to each site. Lower-risk sites might require testing say every 3 years, whilst higher-risk sites might opt for a 1-yearly inspection and testing regime.
Regular inspection, testing and thermal imaging can prevent major breakdowns or equipment failures by identifying faults before they become critical. Early detection of faults can save our customers a lot of down-time, money and hassles by allowing our electricians to repair or replace faulty equipment at a suitable time of your choosing, rather than under emergency conditions.
