Hotels and Motels

Despite being a lower risk than the construction industry or factories and warehouses, hotels and motels still have an element of workplace risk for electrical appliances and tools requiring that all appliances are to be tested on a regular basis.

Legislation around the requirements of testing are a combination of regulation and standards.

If you ask any Motel / Hotelier, they will agree that many appliances are replaced regularly due to the damage or wear of electrical cords. There is a surprisingly high rate of appliances in the rooms that fail testing.

In general, the testing Standard NZS3760 says testing for accommodation houses to be every 24 months, however there are other appliances within the accommodation industry that require more frequent testing. For example, commercial cleaning equipment require regular 6 month testing and office equipment including computers require 12 month testing.

Due to their environment, Kadec Test & Tag recommends the testing of some appliances like toasters, kettles, lamps and clothes irons to be tested as a minimum of every 12 months. However this is only a suggestion for the purpose of safety of your clients and a professional image for your business, it is not a legal requirement.
