About ACME Test and Tagging


Who We Are

Founded by John Blackburn in 2007, ACME is a privately owned, specialist test and tag contracting business servicing the Greater Melbourne area.

Testing and tagging is what we do day-in-day-out and yes, we really enjoy doing it; it's about the work, the people we meet and knowing we are contributing to making workplaces safer places.

With over 13 years experience and +500,000 individual appliance tests behind us we are recognised as experts within the test and tag industry.

What We Do

We specialise in providing fast, efficient and reliable test and tagging services for any workplace that takes their safety seriously.

From dusty building sites to corporate offices and everything in between, we can look after you.

Our simple motto is "If you plug it in, we can test and tag it for you.… more info

ACME supports a number of charities, not-for-profit organisations and other worthy causes including U3A, Lillydale Assist, CFA, Vic SES and Wellways Australia.

We also provide test and tag training courses through our training division Test And Tag Standards Australia


What We Don't Do

A big part of what makes us different and have a very high client retention rate are the things we exclude from our services - here are some of them;

  • No hidden extras
    All expected charges are documented and revealed up-front - we don't need to hide them in fine print
  • No trickle pricing
    Unlike the "budget" operators and the so-called "premium service" providers, we wont sting you with a long list of add-on extras and charges you didn't expect or know about
  • No lock-in contracts
    We believe good service is rewarded by return visits, so it keeps us on our toes and stops us becoming complacent
  • No phantom testing
    You'll never be charged for testing that wasn't performed. Our unique 4 Way Cross-Matching System delivers full transparency and accountability and ensures you''ll only be charged for works that were actually performed.
  • No over-servicing
    You wont get tricked into signing up for services or short retest intervals that aren't genuinely needed
  • No under-servicing
    You wont be mislead into applying unduly long retest intervals under the guise it is a safe strategy that will save you money - we both have too much at stake to take that risk
  • No franchisee loadings
    We are an independent private company so we don't need to load-up our invoices to cover franchise fees and royalties
  • No tricks, No bull, No fuss
    We don't need to rely on tricks and spin to prosper.


What Makes Us Different

Managing a workplace OH&S program can be a very time consuming and stressful role. As a result the test and tag program often stays on the to-do list due to more pressing issues that seem to arise nearly every day. We get that!

With this in mind we developed our unique 5 Step Safer Workplace program that removes all the time and hard work out of running your test and tag program. It takes you from an exposed position to a protected position and keeps you there.

It is the quickest, simplest and easiest way to set up and maintain a fully compliant test and tag program in your workplace.

Here's the best part of it for you... you'll will only need to spend around 5 minutes of your time on your program between our visits.

And that’s where our name ACME comes from - Appliance Compliance Made Easy.


Our Goal

Having a fully compliant test and tag program in place is an essential part of every workplace safety program.

Our goal is to make that as easy as possible for you.

All it takes is one phone call or email to get started. Why not give us a call now!
