Since 2012, NSW implemented new legislation regarding Work Health and Safety which has been updated a few times since.

 As part of these changes, employers and premises controllers (such as building owners and property managers) are now required to consider installing RCDs (Residual Current Devices), commonly known as Safety Switches, on circuits supplying power points with up to 20 amps.

RCDs must undergo regular inspection and testing by licensed electricians utilising specialised equipment. This equipment measures the response time of the RCD in unsafe situations, known as the "RCD Trip Time Test," and can also assess the sensitivity of the device through an "RCD Ramp Current Test."

Comprehensive RCD Testing To Current Australian Standards

Horsell Electrical offers comprehensive RCD inspection and testing services, providing electronic databases and reports that comply with WHS regulations. Our licensed electricians across Newcastle are equipped with specialised testing equipment to ensure compliance with relevant standards, including AS/NZS 3000 for building installations, AS/NZS 3012 for construction sites, AS/NZS 3003 for patient treatment areas, and AS/NZS 3760 for portable RCDs.

In addition to inspection and testing, our electrical contractors can assist with RCD installation, switchboard upgrades, safety audits, and all other industrial electrical installation and safety requirements.
