Safety Switches Gold Coast

When we think about safety in our home, most people think about doors, locks, and alarms. But what happens when the danger comes from within the house? It is easy to forget about malfunctioning electrical systems because they are behind the walls and cupboards. Whether you have a family, a business, or a new home, you protect yourself against the dangers of faulty electrical systems.


Safety switches are something electrical contractors might not share with you when you’re having them work on something for you, but this is the one thing that probably should be at the very top of the list. A glitch in an electrical system can have disastrous effects, so it’s crucial to ensure all switches and switchboards are working correctly. At MCH Electrical, we love safety switches because they offer a solution to virtually any possible power surge or electrical fault.

How does a safety switch work?

Electrical safety switches protect everyone by ensuring that there is no electricity leakage. The response time of safety switches for power leakage is much faster than a heartbeat. The safety switches cut off electricity when power leakage occurs, thus preventing any accident or casualty.

What does the safety switch look like?

When identifying parts of electrical circuits, there are some easy ways to avoid mistakes. Circuit breakers and safety switches reduce the current running through a circuit, but they have different functions. Safety switches have a “Test” or “T” button that does not allow power to run through it at all (as opposed to circuit breakers) for manual testing purposes.

Simon Kempe The team at MCH Electrical are fantastic. They’re extremely professional and maintain great communication from initial inquiry until completion of the job. I was very happy with the quality of workmanship and have no hesitation recommending them to anyone who needs an electrician. Karen Fiala (AlterQuest) Michael was very professional. He advised us about upgrades which we could do if we wished. He also helped us upgrade our fire alarm system to make it up to code for the QLD requirements and totally sorted out our external power box so it was much safer. Michelle Hall Michael was a wonderful find. We have used him before and will use again. We can always count on him to be there, be flexible and go the extra mile when needed. Michael made sure he was available and finished the job to a high standard at a reasonable price. Very grateful.

For a safer living environment in Gold Coast, it is mandatory to have a safety switch or an RCD installed into the main power panel of every home or rental property.
Safety switches will trip to many causes, including excess moisture, mechanical harm to cables and appliances, poor cable insulation, and damage caused by rodents like rats.
You need to go to your safety switchboard and press the “T” key on each of your emergency shutdown devices which should cause the switch to trigger immediately. To reset the emergency shutdown device, push the lever back up into the ‘On’ position. Alternatively, you might need to rotate the lever clockwise if it doesn’t have an automatic reset option.
