Smoke Alarm and Safety Compliance

Smoke Alarm and Safety Compliance

Dyno Electric now provides an annual service for the testing of smoke alarms and safety switches to protect landlords, their investments and their tenants.

Smoke alarm maintenance is governed by both State and Federal regulation. A person who does not comply with this can be guilty of an offence.

As we are Licensed Electricians we can also test the property’s safety switches in accordance with Australian Standards. In South Australia, it is mandatory to install safety switches in all new domestic premises and in buildings where electrical circuits are altered or added.

Landlords have a duty-of-care for their tenants and the South Australian Government states that safety switches should also be tested once per year. 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.

Failure to take the proper precautions to protect the safety of your tenants may result in the dismissal of insurance claims for damage, personal injury or loss of life.

Failure to comply with the Building Code of Australia and Australian Standards may result in a $750 fine.

Call DYNO today on 7231 0361 to receive an information pack about our annual service to ensure you are protected.
