Safety Switches (RCD’s)

A safety switch (or RCD) is a device that quickly switches off the electricity supply if an electrical fault is detected, to minimise the risk of electricity-related fires, electric shock, injury and death.

Safety switches save lives and home owners and landlords have an obligation to comply with Safety Switch laws which vary from state to state. Non compliance can result in penalites for the landlord obligations to install and maintain their Safety Switches. Safety switch or RCD legislation varies from state to state.

Safety Watch Australia have been inspecting and maintaining Safety switches for over a decade and can ensure your property is safe and complies with the latest Safety Switch/RCD laws.

See below for details of specific legislation in your state.
