    In Queensland it is a legislative requirement for hazardous areas to be audited pre-energisation. An audit must be carried out on hazardous area equipment that has been newly installed or modified, and must be completed before the equipment can be energised.

    BRS are able to provide hazardous area audits performed by experienced EEHA auditors registered with the Electrical Safety Office (ESO).

    Outside of QLD or for other stages of the project life cycle we can also provide a variety of other site audit and inspection services to suit your installations needs.
