How safety switches work
When a person comes into direct contact with electricity, electricity is directed through their body to earth. This causes a loss in the amount of electricity in the electrical circuit (the path for the flow of electricity). A safety switch detects very small losses of electricity and immediately switches the power off.
A safety switch can switch off electricity in a circuit in as little as 0.3 seconds.
Fuses and circuit breakers protect against short circuits and current overloads, but only safety switches protect people from electric shock.
Why do I need a safety switch?
Safety switches provide protection against injuries caused by electricity. Many of the fatalities caused by electricity could be prevented by installing a safety switch. Many older homes may not be protected by safety switches.
In 1991 it became mandatory in South Australia to have safety switches installed in all new domestic premises and in buildings where electrical circuits are altered or added. Safety switches are also required for power outlets supplying caravans or similar accommodation in caravan parks.
