Safety Switches or RCD’s (Residual Current Devices) are a
fantastic device they minimise the
risk of electric shocks, injuries and deaths and electricity-related fires.
Sadly, less than half Australian
homes have any safety switches installed at all.
Every day activities such as
hammering in a nail for a picture or using an electrical appliance can turn
deadly without the protection of a safety switch.
15 Australians are killed in
preventable home electrical accidents each year and around 20 times that number
are hospitalised with serious injuries.
Did you know, Safety Switches have
been mandatory by law in all new homes since 1991 and recently the Western
Australia government has enforced the installation of Safety switches in all
rental properties, I imagine Tasmania will follow suit.
We can upgrade your switchboard to
protect you and your home with the installation of safety switches and circuit
breakers at an average cost of $590 + GST
