The Advantages of Electrical Inspections

Mar 27

An electrical inspection is a process that ensures that a building’s electrical system is safe and meets the Australian and New Zealand standards, AS/NZS 3000:2007. During an inspection, a qualified and experienced electrician will carry out an in-depth assessment of the electrical systems, appliances, and components in a home, business, or commercial space to ensure they are compliant and safe from electrical hazards. An inspector may suggest remedial work and provide a Certificate of Compliance to certify the safety of the electrical equipment. To learn more, visit our website at

What is the aim of an electrical inspection?

The primary aim of an electrical inspection is to identify any electrical problems and faults that could pose a risk to the property, its occupants, and visitors. Electrical inspections are conducted by qualified and certified electricians who are trained to detect any potential electrical hazards in a building. They can also identify any components or wiring that require repairs, upgrades or replacement – to ensure that you and your family are kept safe.

What is the electrical safety inspection checklist?

An electrical safety inspection checklist includes a range of tests and measurements that look for any potential hazards in the electrical circuits. This includes testing the wiring and the performance of electrical appliances, as well as checking their condition and age. The checklist also covers inspecting all electrical switches and outlets, circuit breakers, and surge protection devices, looking for any overloading, and assessing the insulation around wiring. All of these tests are designed to ensure that the electrical system is safe and compliant.

How often should you undergo an electrical inspection?

It is recommended that each property undergoes an electrical inspection every five years at least. However, for businesses, it is best to have an electrical inspection done every two to three years to make sure that the system is kept up to date and meets all safety regulations. Depending on the type of property, an additional inspection may be necessary if there have been any recent renovations or changes to the electrical systems.

What are the Benefits?

Having your property regularly inspected for any electrical problems or faults not only keeps you and your family safe, but can also save you money in the long run. By proactively identifying any issues before they become major problems, you can avoid costly repairs or replacements down the track. An electrical inspection can also reduce your risk of insurance claims related to electrical faults, and it can also ensure that you meet all federal and local regulations regarding electrical safety.
