Well its been a little while since my last post …. I hope everybody has had a good start to the year…. And a big shout out to all our clients and friends in the area , Bundaberg , Maryborough , Gladstone , Hervey Bay , Childers , Agnes waters , 1770 , Gayndah , Monto , Biloela….
Today I would like to discuss Safety Switches or sometimes they are called RCD’s . Here is an Example of of Safety Switches that you may find in a business or commercial premises
I came across this interesting video on Safety switches….. It is aimed at the householder but can equally apply to any business …. Its important to note that while certified testing of domestic dwelling is not required , testing of business and commercial premises is mandated by Queensland regulations…. This is to be done on a 6 monthy basis and includes both mechanical and time trip testing …. In fact it is a requirement that all businesses have all single phase outlets covered by a Safety switch in the switchboard….. The only Exception to this my be 3 phase power outlets.
However their is nothing stopping a business from testing the mechanical function on a more regular basis…… I know from personal experience that Safety Switches save lives , so please ensure that you have one install on all general power outlets circuits at home as a minimum , as the video suggest they advise that just about all your circuits are covered by a safety switch .
In conclusion , if you would like an inspection/testing of your safety switches please do not hesitate to call and discuss your needs
