The ultimate protection
What is a safety switch?
RCD devices are sometimes known as earth leakage circuit breakers and are commonly referred to as being safety switches. Safety switches are designed to prevent electric shock and save lives. They monitor the flow of electricity through a circuit and routinely shut off the electricity supply when an imbalance is detected in a circuit.
I’m building a house – do I need them?
Safety switches are mandatory on all power and light circuits in homes built since 2000. In 2009, the Western Australian government enforced the installation of safety switches in all rental properties and all properties sold.
