How do Safety Switches work?

Safety Switch Installation: The current flowing to an appliance, on a normal power circuit, returns through the neutral wire. If the circuit is compromised, the electricity can leak to earth through a person in contact with the appliance, causing death or serious injury.

safety switch detects the loss of power from the circuit and cuts the supply of electricity in as little as 30 milliseconds – 0.003 seconds. More importantly, this response time is faster than the critical section of a heartbeat, and therefore significantly reduces the risk of death or serious injury. If you don’t have them already, we recommend you call one of Sharpe Service’s certified electricians to install them for you.

Yes – Safety switch installation in your electrical switchboard is compulsory and has been since the early 1990s.

Safety Switch Installation Saves Lives

Did you know that safety switches have been required in new house builds and renovations since 1991? How old is your house? Does it meet modern safety standards? When was it last tested and checked for safety?
Double the safety

Without the proper fail-safe protection devices, a circuit overload can result in potential electrocution or even a house fire. Over 15 Australians are killed annually due to household electricity, many of these accidents could have been prevented by having safety switch installation.

Contact our office administration team and they will dispatch the closest member of our team out to you without delay. Because we have such a big and widespread team of fully qualified accredited master electricians we can be there within the hour.

Did you know that you might need a Safety Switch (or a Switchboard) upgrade even if your house is new or just built?

In modern houses usually only one RCD (Safety Switch) is put to protect 3-4 circuits. That means protection is placed to cover 3-4 circuits, rather than each circuit individually. That can cause half of the house to lose power and also compromises the safety for your family. After a switchboard upgrade to modern safety RCBs (when each circuit has its own built in safety switch) it will only trip one circuit with the fault, leaving the rest of the house with power, protecting your family and property. Call Sharpe Service’s certified electricians on 131 750 to get your switchboards inspected.

Just because your house is new doesn’t mean you don’t need a safety switch!
