a. Hard wired to the electricity supply;
b. Interconnected to every other smoke alarm;
c. Installed in each bedroom;
d. Installed in hallways serving bedrooms
e. Installed in the exit path of every story containing bedrooms
From 1 January 2022 for dwellings being leased, re-leased or sold. From 1 January 2027 for all other dwellings.
The smoke alarms installed after these dates will be required to be powered by either hard-wired 240-volt or 10-year non-removable 10 year battery and be interconnected by either wired or wirelessly to all other required smoke alarms in the dwelling. All smoke alarms that are required by legislation must be AS3786–2014 compliant smoke alarms.
From 1 January 2022 for dwellings being leased, released or sold or 1 January 2027 for all other dwellings.

It could be a faulty appliance.

Points to consider when buying a new ceiling fan
Ceiling fans are a great energy efficient cooling option for your home, both indoors and out. The range of variations is enormous and can be confusing to residents upgrading old fans or installing new units. We’ve put together some tips to help you choose the perfect ceiling fan for your particular needs.
It’s important to select a quiet fan for use in sleeping areas or home offices to avoid excessive noise disruption. Choose a fan specifically designed for outdoor use if you need one on the verandah or deck to ensure it doesn’t rust and is suited to outdoor conditions.
If a circuit is compromised to an electrical appliance, electricity can leak onto the person into the earth causing serious injury or death. An electrical safety switch will detect the loss of power from the circuit and cut the supply of electricity in around 30 milliseconds. This is faster than a heartbeat and eliminates the risk of serious injury.
Absolutely! Again, if you’re planning a major renovation or wiring change for your home in Brisbane, we strongly suggest kicking it off with a site inspection by one of our experienced electricians.
Test & Tag
Places of work use the test and tag system, where a qualified electrician tests each piece of equipment to ensure its safe for use. A tag is placed onto each piece of equipment after the test, stating the current and next required test date.
There is a number of reasons why your lights may be flickering. Starting with it simply not being screwed in properly or it may be a more serious underlying issue. Three main reasons why your lights may be flicking; a loose bulb, Faulty switch or connection or a voltage fluctuation.
Whilst a loose bulb can usually be fixed with a replacement, it is highly recommended to have a professional electrician step in if the replacement doesn’t work. There is a high hazard risk for issues of this nature and it should not be taken lightly.
If you are an employer, you have a duty of care to ensure that employees and visitors to the workplace are safe from injury and risks to health. You must therefore manage any safety risks surrounding electrical hazards, in accordance with the requirements of the OHS and WHS Acts and regulations around Australia You must apply a systematic risk management approach to eliminate or control the risk of electrical hazards. After the risk assessment, you can then implement a range of control measures including:
a. routine visual checks
b. regular inspection
f. use of residual current devices (RCDs)
g. and, testing of identified electrical equipment
Appliances testing and tagging is the safety inspection and testing of 240V or 415V volt plug in electrical ietms (any items with a Power Plug). The current workplace, Health and Safety Legislation states that all workplaces across Australia have a duty of care and must be able to
demonstrate safe work systems, including Electrical and Appliances Safety.
Electrical Testing and Tagging is a procedure and test in which minimises the risk of electrical shock to your staff and visitors with in your workplace.
Each Appliance item is inspected, electrically tested using a testing unit, and then has a tag placed on the lead and/or casing depending on the item. The tag is a record of your appliance testing which is a part of the Workplace Health & Safety Requirements and should be held for 7
Get the electrics checked if you move into a new property that has been occupied
1. If records show 5 years have passed since a check was last done
2. If the property is 25 years old or over
3. If there are no proper records of inspections done or you’re concerned about the validity of
the last one

(Also known as an electrical panel) is an enclosure that has an electrical input from one place (electricity supply) and directs the electrical flow into another. These could be other areas of a building or installation. Switch boards in Darwin are fed from the source of power and may have sub boards down stream from the mains generally cascading in size in both cable and circuit protection. Each switchboard will have switch-gear or if it’s old, circuit breakers or even a fuse board. Now we have the requirement for Safety switches in all switchboards in Australia when they are installed for electrical safety. These circuit breakers or safety switches are devices used to protect both cabling and infrastructure and people and livestock.
Your new electrical switchboard should have safety switches or RCD (residual current devices) installed on mounted enclosures within. These protect the cabling and in turn the board itself from fault. Residual Current Devices protect you from injury and death from electric shocks. If there is a fault condition residual current device rcd is designed to cut the
power of your local electrical system for safety.. If there is a fault on your electrical circuit or appliances you can reset the fault here when the rcd trip occurs. If the fault fails to clear then unplug your devices on that circuit and try and reset again. If your fault still does not clear, it’s a
good idea to call your local Darwin electrician or electrical services company to complete switchboard repairs or switchboard testing as needed.
