Why safety switches are important
A safety switch is a switchboard device that switches off the electricity supply if a power leak is detected through your circuits. This device is used as an electrical safety device to prevent electrical shocks and fires.
There is a misconception that safety switches and circuit breakers are the same, but this is not true as they are different. Where a safety switch is made to protect people, a circuit breaker is used to protect the circuitry and wiring.
By law, safety switches are to be installed as part of your switchboard system. Older homes may not even have a safety switch fitted, meaning that there could be a risk of someone being electrocuted. If you are unsure whether you have a safety switch, be sure to get in contact to discuss your situation.
