Regulations ensure people in domestic rental properties have the same protection from electric shock that homeowners have, and safety switches must be installed within three months of the sale of any domestic residence built before 1992.
Electrical Safety Switches & Smoke Alarms – Brisbane
Of course property owners and managers all know that they have a duty under the electrical safety laws to ensure their rental property is electrically safe for tenants and everyone who visits or works on the property. So bear in mind safety switches, smoke alarms, maintaining electrical appliances, and even tingles and shocks from taps. For instance, if a safety switch is not installed in your rental property you may be fined up to $1,500.
And it is your responsibility to regularly check and maintain any poles on your property that connect to the electricity network too
Electrical incidents in the rural industry often involve contact between machinery or irrigation pipes with overhead powerlines. Other causes of electrical incidents include general lack of electrical equipment maintenance and unauthorised electrical handywork.
And remember, while householders can clean the lint filter, exhaust duct, vent and the exterior of clothes dryers, only a licensed electrician can maintain and clean the interior of the dryer.
Have you upgraded the smoke alarms in your rental property yet? That is not an option – it’s the law, and there are 400,000 rental properties still to be upgraded. So do it now, because if your property is not upgraded by the deadline, it cannot be rented out and you won’t receive any rental income. Tradesmen On Time use Red Smoke Alarms with a full 10-year warranty, so they are guaranteed for their entire life.
