What Is an Electrical Safety Check?
An electrical safety check keeps your residence or business establishment away from potential electrical hazards. A regular electrical inspection can be for an old home or for a new property. These can help uncover any outdated or faulty wiring, inadequate electrical work, as well as identifying faulty electrical components that can lead to fire and shock hazards.
Electrical Safety Inspection For Electical Installations
Two types of electrical safety inspections can be conducted for any home or business property. These two types of inspections are a rough-in and an electrical property inspection.
A rough-in inspection is done after the 1’st fix electrical installation this is done before the interior walls (gyprock) is installed. The licensed electrician will conduct a visual inspection of the cable sizes and types being installed while also checking the wiring of the electrical switch board & cabling routes.
Note: We will require your electrical plans for this inspection.
A electrical property inspection is one that is done after the walls and fittings have been installed. The electrician will check the operations of switches, power outlets (voltage, polarity & trip times), correct operation & location of smoke alarms (if there is one within the property), switch board operation of lights & lighting control as well as the cabling within the roof space.
This process typically takes hours as the electrician would have to go through the roof space & each room to examine the electrical system. Once the inspection is done, the electrician will issue a report as to what needs to be fixed as well as the overall condition of your home’s electrical wiring.
Professional Testing & Tagging Services for Electrical Equipment & Electrical Appliances
Electrical maintenance involves a testing and tagging procedure to ensure that your residential, commercial property or operations is complying with national electrical legislations and workplace safety regulations.
Test & tag is the process by which a competent person performs a careful examination of the electrical appliance present in your premises. By ensuring that an appliance is working properly (with the aid of a portable appliance tester), the electrician can ensure the safety of people coming into contact with the equipment.
Test and tag services look for any irregularities in your electrical appliance, such as faulty wiring, plugs, exposed or tangled cables; while also checking for any leakages or tripping risk. Once the tag and testing is done, the equipment will have a tag which states that it is in good working condition; with the name of the electrician or company that conducted the test, and when the next testing will be due.
Remain Safety Compliant with Electical Safety Checks
Electrical safety inspections and tests are carried out by licensed electricians to ensure that no electrical faults or hazards are present in your home or commercial facility.
However, keeping your premises safe is your responsibility. Whatever environment you’re in, it is important to ensure you’re compliant for electrical safety and that you’re offering a range of protection for your household or employees while avoiding violations or other issues.
Understanding the specific regulations in your industry for electrical work is of utmost importance. Since electrical standards evolve over time, it is crucial to keep your property up todate with the latest standards to remain compliant.
