What is an electrical safety switch?
An electrical safety switch monitors the flow of electricity through a circuit and is designed to automatically shut off the electrical supply when a leaking current is detected. This could be from faulty switches, wiring or an electrical appliance. This then stops the chance of the current electrocuting someone.
The law states that all houses built since 1992 must have an electrical safety switch installed. If you buy a house that does not have an electrical safety switch, you must install one within three months of the property transfer.
An electrical safety switch must be installed by licensed, electrical contractors.

Electrical Safety Testing
Specialised electrical equipment and safety switches must have electrical safety testing performed at regular intervals, depending on their class of work. Only a qualified tradesman can test and tag electrical equipment. To ensure your electrical safety, our electrical contractors, Brisbane can carry out all electrical safety testing around your home and workplace.
Particularly after a natural disaster, such as a cyclone, flood or storm, we recommend having a qualified electrician to safety test your equipment and appliances.
