Smoke Alarm Test/Maintain
-ensure all alarms comply with Australian Standards
-Ensure all alarms satisfy the requirements of the Building code of Australia in regard to placement and position
-Ensure all alarms are not past their expiry date (all smoke alarms, including 240v hard wired alarms must be replaced within 10 years of the manufacture date)
-Remove and test the battery to ensure more than 80% charge and replace when required
-Test audible output of the alarm to ensure no less than 80dba
-Thoroughly clean alarm and spray with compressed air (Many smoke alarm service providers use Smoke In A Can. This leaves an oil residue on the alarm and causes many false and beeping alarms and should not be used)
-Remove alarm from ceiling, check connections and ensure power supply to 240v hard wired alarms using Voltfinger technology
-Relocate 9v battery smoke alarms to correct positions when required to save you the cost of a new alarm
-Clean up any mess.
Safety Switches Test/Maintain
The use of RCD’s both domestically and in the workplace is now mandatory across Australia and governed by several pieces of legislation. These RCD devices are available as a fixed component, wired into the building’s electrical switchboard or as a portable unit for use on around job sites.
Queensland works under the Electrical Safety Regulation 2002, whilst other States have similar legislation.
Under AS/NZS 3760 there is requirement for regular testing and recording of the results by a "Competent Person" i.e. a licenced electrician. These records (register) must be retained and available on request.
As you may imagine the legislation identifies specific testing requirements for the various types and classifications of RCD’s available. Purpose built testing tools are used to ensure the tests are conducted accurately.
The records are retained in a folder with the front section containing the test register. In particular this quickly allows inspectors to identify;
The second section shall hold the actual test records for the RCD’s in question. It highlights among various items;
These tests if conducted properly and in accordance with the frequency nominated in AS/NZS 3760, offer the "Peace of Mind" to Owners, Managers & Users that they are taking the first steps towards responsible OHS practices.
