Why do I need to ‘test’ safety switches?

Safety switches need to be tested regularly to ensure the mechanism works freely. Over time dust, debris and moisture can build up in your switchboard causing the safety switch to slow or cease altogether. Our master electricians recommend testing should be carried out every three months.

Home test

You can test your home safety switch yourself by simply pressing the button marked 'Test' or 'T'. The safety switch should trip, turning off the power to the power points around your home. To reset the switch push back to the 'On' position. If the switch will not reset we recommend calling a licenced electrician to assess the issue.

Safety switches on all circuits

Fallon Solutions master electricians recommend the installation of safety switches on all home electrical circuits. At present only the power point circuit is required by legislation to be fitted with a switch, to fully protect your family from electrical accidents we advise each circuit is fitted including the hot water system, air conditioning, oven, lights and pool.
