Testing Cycles

Portable appliances in rooms at hotel/motel/accommodation facilities require testing every two years. Appliances in restaurant/hotel kitchens should be tested every six months. Computers are classified as low risk appliances and only require inspection every 5 years.

  • It all starts with a simple phone call or an email.
  • An information pack containing general electrical safety material and a quote created to the specifics of your business will be sent out shortly after.
  • Upon acceptance, a time for testing that least interrupts your daily operations will be arranged.
  • The work will be performed in an orderly manner by one or several Appliance Check employees carrying their identifications and certified test equipment.
  • All inspected appliances will be tagged (with company name, date, inspection no.) and recorded on a data sheet. Any failed items will be labeled "DO NOT USE" and identified to an appropriate staff member. Failed items must be repaired, taken out of commission or disposed of.
  • Upon completion of testing a hard copy 'Appliance Register' (digital format available by request) outlining every individual item inspected will be sent to your business.
  • Once you are in the system you no longer have to worry about your future testing dates, Appliance Check will send you an automated reminder before your next inspection is due so you can be assured you will always be fully compliant.
