Major Event Audits & Inspections

Major public events require significant risk management processes to ensure public safety at major events. Correct connections to the electricity supply for temporary stalls and mobile vans need to be guaranteed.

With a thorough knowledge and understanding of Australian Standards of electrical safety for Shows and Carnivals (AS/NZS 3002:2008), Transportable Structures and Vehicles (AS/NZS 3001:2008) and mobile generators, Kent Electrical is a trusted and competent large event inspector.

Test & Tag

Certain portable electrical appliances in the workplace must be regularly tested to identify damage, wear and detect electrical faults.

It is a two-part process. A visual inspection for damage is carried out by a suitably qualified person and is followed by an electronic test using a Portable Appliance Tester.

A record of testing must be kept attached to the electrical equipment until it is next tested, permanently removed from the workplace or disposed of. It must specify:

The relevant Australian standards are:

AS/NZS 3760: 2010 – In service safety inspection and testing of electrical equipment, outlines inspection, testing and tagging methods.

AS/NZS 3012: 2010 – Electrical installations – Construction and demolition sites, outlines regular inspection and testing requirements.

Thermal Images

Thermal imaging is a non-destructive, non-contact form of testing using infrared radiation.

It is used to detect hidden defects before they pose significant risks or, in general maintenance to speed diagnosis and repair of a defect once it has been found. 

Only Licensed Electricians hold qualifications which meet the Australian standards to allow full testing of all electrical equipment and have the knowledge and understanding of electrical components. In addition, training in the understanding of thermographic principals, diagnostics and reports is vital. ISO9712/AS3998.
