What is the process of multi-site testing for electrical maintenance? – Thermal imaging & exit light testing specialists
During the planning process, our electricians focus on getting the correct details from you to get a comprehensive understanding and scope of the job. The following factors are considered when checking your compliance for electrical and fire safety standards:
- How many sites do you have?
- Where are the sites located?
- How many appliances need to be serviced?
- When was the last time you had testing completed?
Since multi-site testing involves thorough planning, it’s best to know this information prior to beginning the project to ensure travel costs and time is considered in the quoting process.
Do you need multi-site electrical testing? We offer RCD test tags, appliance testing and thermal imaging services throughout most of Queensland. Contact us today.
What do you receive in the preventative maintenance report for multi-site testing?
When it comes to reporting your multi-site locations, we provide a comprehensive digital report that is quick, user-friendly, and simple to use. At the completion of our testing, you will have access to a secure portal website that showcases a detailed report for each of your site locations. We organise the reports in accordance with the year of testing, so the client can refer to all past and current test results. We will also provide you with a Certificate of Compliance to prove that you have fulfilled your Duty of Care and legal obligations in the event of an audit or emergency.

What assets are tested and checked in multi-site testing?
At Voltec Maintenance, our team of highly qualified specialists makes us a leading provider of integrated electrical and fire services: from inspection and testing to maintenance and emergency support. Our electricians conduct comprehensive testing and reporting on the following items.
Evacuation plans are essential in all premises and need to be compliant. When assessing the diagrams, we check the following:
- Is there is evacuation plan on site?
- Is the evacuation diagram compliant with BFSR 2008?
Furthermore, we check that the plan is secured in a snap frame and contains all critical elements.
Smoke alarm testing
During smoke alarm testing, we consider the following elements:
- How many smoke alarms are present on site?
- Is the site compliant with new legislation?
- Are all smoke alarms interconnected?
- Have all smoke alarms passed testing?
We also take note of the brand and specific location to ensure compliance.
Our team conduct testing on fire protection assets including fire extinguisher testing and fire blankets. We assess the site compliance by checking the following:
- Does the site contain fire protection assets?
- How many fire blankets and fire extinguishers are on site?
- Are fire protection assets correctly marked on the evacuation plan?
- Is the site compliant with AS 1851?

Emergency exit lighting
During emergency exit light testing, we will check the following items:
- How many exit lighting assets are on site?
- Did all the emergency exit lights pass testing?
- Are all exit light locations present on the evacuation plan?
Thermal imaging testing
We conduct thermal imaging on main switchboards and distribution boards to record the temperatures and assess any present or potential faults. If a problem has been identified, we will make necessary repairs, otherwise, if no action is required, a 12-month reinspection will be recommended.
RCD test tags
RCD testing involves examining each distribution board and circuit breaker to determine the overall health of all switchboards. We conduct injection testing where each circuit is tripped at 180 and 0 degrees to determine what point the circuit breaker trips.
We provide appliance test and tag services to multi-site clients upon request. Read more about our electrical test and tag services.
