Important electrical safety message from the Director of Energy Safety
To the Proprietor
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 or others in your premises against electrocution.
The amount of current needed to kill you, an employee or visitor to your establishment 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 others from electrocution.
You are well aware, I am sure, of your occupational safety obligations as a person controlling or managing a workplace. Installing RCDs will set your mind at rest concerning shocks and possible fires caused by electricity.
I recommend that you have at least TWO of these life-saving devices installed in your business premises to protect all socket outlets and lighting points.
Any licensed electrical contractor can supply and fit RCDs in your main meter panel. They will be happy to give you a no-obligation price quotation.
Invest in RCDs! Remember – no RCD means no second chance.
