Electrical Safety Rules Revision in Effect

Following a number of tragic incidents in homes and buildings, the area of electrical safety has come under the spotlight.

In order to keep guidelines for construction of modern homes up to date and effective, we will see a number of changes and updates being introduced to the revised Electrical Wiring Standards of Australia (AS/NZS 3000) in the coming months.

One of the major changes in the rules for new homeowners, builders and electrical contractors, is the fitting of RCDs, or safety switches to all electrical circuits, including hardwired devices or appliances such as air-conditioning systems, electric cooker ovens, pool pumps and other hardwired units that previously were exempt.

Safety switches can help avoid potential electric shock or electrocution but the chance of an electrical fire is also minimised.
