Appliance Tagging Services Pty Ltd was established in 2002 by Managing Director, Ainslie Allen as a result of increasing demand for electrical safety testing services and provides Australia-wide service in electrical safety testing and management and with the focus on safety in the workplace becoming more prominent, the demand for ATS is increasing every day.
In 2006 Appliance Tagging Services recruited its first franchisee in Melbourne’s South Eastern suburbs and has since grown to 27 franchisees across 6 Australian States and Territories.

Every Australian State and Territory has O&HS legislation which details workplace health and safety standards designed to reduce work-related injury and illness.
These requirements are known as Duty of Care. Duty of Care requires everything ‘reasonably practicable’ to be done to protect the health and safety of others at the workplace. This duty is placed on all employers, their employees, and any others who have an influence on the hazards in a workplace.
In most States and Territories, the generally recognised AS/NZS 3760:2010 safety protocols are the safest, most convenient and cost effective method of ensuring workplace electrical safety available. This standard specifies in-service safety inspection and testing and retesting protocols and provides a cost effective approach to safety.
In some states however, specific electrical safety requirements are specified in legislation.
