Licensing of Electrical contractors and Electricians
Electricity is invisible, dangerous and unpredictable – you cannot see when something is 'live'. The risks associated with an unsafe electrical installation are high, many fires are attributed to electrical faults. That is why it is so important for electrical work to be carried out by electricians with the appropriate licence. In WA we have a regulated licensing system in place to ensure only competent workers carry out electrical installing work.
Only those that meet competency standards are licensed. A disciplinary process is also in place to ensure that only competent persons remain licensed.
Only Electrical contractors are authorised to employ electricians
We've been around for a long time (longer than most) – our EC Number EC00171 – is proof, it means we have the experience to solve any electrical issue.
If you believe you have some 'less than satisfactory' electrical work, call us immediately as you and others may be at risk.
We also provide Electrical Safety Inspection and testing reports for any Home or commercial premises.
Hiring an electrician
If you need any electrical work done, you should make sure that whoever you engage are suitable to perform the work. Some questions you should ask them include:
- What is your EC number ? (EC number should be displayed)
- Do you have adequate insurance for the work ?
- Can you provide a written quote?
- Can you provide a Safety Certificate for the work (This is also a Certificate of compliance)
- Do you have references for other work ?
If you're unsure please contact us – we will try to help.
