What is a safety switch? A safety switch is a device that automatically switches off the electricity in your home if leakage of the current is detected. Safety switches are designed to minimise the chance of electrical-related fires, electrical shock, injury, or in some extreme cases even death.
All Purpose Trade Solutions electricians offer safety switch installation, testing, and repairs throughout Brisbane, Logan, Gold Coast, Moreton Bay and Sunshine Coast regions.

Yes, it is a legal requirement for domestic residences rented in Queensland to have at least one safety switch fitted after a tenancy agreement is signed. This is the responsibility of the property owner if one is not already installed. Landlords who fail to comply may be fined up to $1,500.
Important: Tenants are urged to contact their real estate agent or landlord directly if their residence doesn’t have a safety switch on at least the power circuits. This is so that the landlord is notified and can arrange to have one fitted. Homes built from 1992 onwards are required to have a safety switch on all power points and since 2000 on lighting circuits also.
No, if your safety switch is frequently tripping this is a good sign that your safety switch is far from broken as it is doing its job. If it was broken it wouldn’t be tripping at all and then you would be in a world of trouble.
The problem that you now face is that there is something in your house that is causing the safety switch to trip. To try to find the issue unplug everything in your house (including - the fridge, stove top, oven, hairdryer, everything) now turn on your safety switch and plug in your appliances one by one. If you plug something in and it trips the power you have just found your problem.
It isn’t always an appliance's fault as to why your safety switch is tripping. Sometimes it can be a result of something external like an outdoor power point that has over time become a home to insects that have worn away the wire insulation.
After heavy downpours water can sometimes find its way into outdoor light fixtures. It could even be from a lightning strike that has hit and sent a surge through the lines to your home.
There are lots of reasons why your safety switch could be tripping. When all else fails you can also call in a nAll Purpose Trade Solutions electrician to diagnose the problem and suggest a solution to suit your needs.
