Quite often, homeowners don’t think about power and electricity until something goes wrong. And quite sadly, when something goes wrong, these mishaps can range from minor electric shocks, to power outage or more severe cases where you house may become engulfed in flames within minutes – putting your families lives at risk.
In Australia, more than 300 electrical fires (per state) occur each year and are commonly caused by old wiring that is unable to cope with the demands of modern electrical systems

Switchboard Inspections and Safety Switch Testing
Did you know the inspection of main switchboards and frequent testing of communal safety switches is paramount to your home’s safety? Quite often, we find in Strata managed buildings, these are overlooked and forgotten.
Lack of inspection and testing isn’t only a breach of building safety compliance, it can also contribute to major safety hazards that can be avoided if inspected and rectified by a Master Electrician.
With constant upgrades and advancements in the world of electricity, many older buildings are more than likely not up to date with the current Australian Electrical Safety standards. This is due to infrequent Home Safety Checks, therefore missed important upgrades to the electrical components and systems, posing potential household hazards.
Australian Standard (AS 3019 -2007) refers to the periodic verification for electrical services within common areas to be completed. It a strong safety recommendation that all Body Corporates complete switchboard inspections every 2 years as a minimum as it a critical piece of infrastructure for the supply of power to the building.
For buildings with multiple properties, for example, units, safety switches for the communal lights can be found inside the main switchboard. Also located inside here should be safety switches for individual properties.
It is imperative that these safety switches are tested by a licensed Master Electrician to ensure they are tripping within the required time of 300 milliseconds – cutting power to any faulty source and safeguarding you from injury. If a safety switch does not trip within the required time, it is deemed faulty and should be replaced immediately.
Master Electricians are licensed to test Safety Switches in accordance with AS/NZ 3760:2010. This specifies that inspection and testing must be completed every six months (push button) and 2 years (operating time test).
To avoid the risk of non-compliance that could lead to electrical safety hazards, which commonly cause electrical fires and shock, check your inspection records for currency.
If you find these are out of date, get in touch with one of our Alliance Master Electrician’s to bring the safety of your building back up to the required safety standard and protect your family from potential harm.
