Electrical Safety and Compliance

Your safety is of the utmost importance to us and so we are dedicated to ensuring your home or investment property is compliant with all government regulations. All new homes, investment or rental properties as well as sale properties are required to uphold these government regulations, however because safety is so important, we do recommend that even if you own and live in an old home, that you ensure your electrical safety measures meet the Australian standards. Home ownership and occupancy will determine the rules and regulations that must be enforced, specifically for smoke alarms and RCD safety switches. If you are concerned if your home is safe or compliant, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our office to get information on your specific situation. However, please see below for the general information you need to know for your home.

Electrical Safety Requirements for Sale of Property or Rental Dwellings

At the time of settlement, sellers are required to provide an Electrical Safety Certificate (commonly referred to as an ESC) before the change of ownership can occur. It is your responsibility as a previous owner to ensure that your property is safe according to current standards. Always Electrical is able to do an electrical inspection and repair, change-over or install any insufficient safety items. On completion of the inspection, if deemed compliant, they will complete a Safety Certificate; this will be emailed to the paying client.

During this inspection our Electrical Tradesman will ensure that there is the correct amount of smoke alarms for the dwelling, making sure they are in date and are in working order. While there are a number of factors that determine the required number of smoke alarms, the fundamental rule is that if all bedrooms are off of one hallway then only 1 hardwired smoke alarm is required. However, if there is a separate bedroom in another area of the house, another smoke detector will be needed in that area as well. In addition to this, if it is a double storey house, there will need to be one smoke alarm on each level of the home.

Our tradesmen will also ensure that there are 2 RCDs installed in your switchboard, as per government requirement for sales or rental properties. RCDs are used to protect all power and lighting circuits in case of an electrical or appliance fault. Having this technology means that you are protected if a fault or electrical hazard occurs. These devices provide a quick power trip to defend you from harm if an imbalance of electrical current is detected.

RCD Safety Switches are imperative to ensure you are safe in case of fault, which means it is so important to check and test your RCDs regularly. Each RCD is fitted with a test button, it is recommended that you press this button every 3 months to ensure the RCD trips your power. If it cuts off power to the circuits through the test simulation you can be reassured that the safety switch is in good working order. To restore power, all you have to do is flip the switch of the tripped RCD back on. However, if by pressing the test button the power is not cut-off, we recommend you call Always Electrical to attend to your home, as this indicates that your RCD is faulty.
