Our Inspection Process
Our qualified consultant examines gas equipment and follows a systematic testing procedure.

Each plant item is recorded in an individual report.
Non-compliant or faulty equipment are identified in the report.
The report is cross-referenced to relevant Australian Standard, Industry Codes of Practice, WTIA Technical Notes and manufacturer’s specifications.
Plant register created or updated (if required).
We offer quarterly, 6 monthly or yearly inspections depending on the needs of your business, our recommendation is a minimum 6 monthly inspection in accordance with the recommendations set out in the Australian Standards AS 4839-2001.
- Australian Standard 4839-2001 (The safe use of portable and mobile oxy-fuel gas systems for welding, cutting, heating and allied processes) recommends regulators, hand pieces and hoses are inspected and tested every 6 months by a technically competent person.
- Australian Standard 4603-1999 (Flashback arresters—Safety devices for use with fuel gases and oxygen or compressed air) recommends flashback arrestors are tested at least every 12 months or after a flash back.
