Important electrical safety message from the Director of Energy Safety
To the Home Owners
Dear Sir / Madam
No RCD means no second chance
Residual current devices (RCDs) are the single most effective measure to prevent electrocutions, serious electrical injuries and fires.
The circuit breakers and fuses in your electrical panel protect against overloading and short circuits. They will not protect you against electrocution. The amount of current needed to kill you is far too little to cause a fuse to blow or a circuit breaker to operate. An RCD is the only device able to save you and your family from electrocution.
To make Western Australian homes and businesses safer, I am very keen to see each one of them fitted with RCDs. I strongly recommend that you have at least TWO of these life-saving devices fitted to your premises.
Any licensed electrical contractor can supply and fit RCDs in the main meter panel of your house or business. They will be happy to give you a no-obligation price quotation.
Invest in RCDs! Remember – no RCD means no second chance.
