Free electrical equipment inspections tomorrow
All electrical equipment used within the common areas of the trading floor needs to be regularly inspected, tested and tagged by an authorised person.
The MMA will be providing this service FREE for all Market store and stand holders on Wednesday 16 May post trade.
There are two options available:
1. Leave any electrical items to be tested in common areas of the trading floor including at front of store tenancies or on trading stands at the conclusion of trade.
2. Bring your electrical items outside the rear of the Customer Service Centre anytime between 7:00am to 8:00am where ElectroSafe will be testing electrical items.
Examples of electrical equipment for testing and tagging include EFTPOS and cash registers, laptops, extension leads, electric vehicle charges, phone charges, other electrical items used within stand and licensed areas such as radios or heaters.
What happens if my item fails the electrical test?
Any equipment that fails the electrical testing will be physically isolated (plug cut off) to make sure the equipment cannot be used until repaired.
The Market Business is responsible for repairing or replacing the failed equipment.
I don’t want my items tested and tagged.
If you don’t want your items tested and tagged, pack them away at the end of trade into your store tenancy or take them away with you at the end of trade.
