Under OH&S laws, each year the safety switches (RCDs) in your swithboards need to be tested to ensure they are functioning correctly. Visual checks of your wiring are also carried out as well as other testing, such as fault loop impedance and potential short circuit current. All of these tests are performed to ensure the integrity of the wiring and electrical components in your switchboard to make sure that in a fault situation the protective equipment will work as it should.
An additioal test which can be performed to look for potential faults and fire hazards is thermal imaging of the switchboard. This examination method will highlight any cables or joints that are creating excessive heat due to being loose or undersized. It allows for potential issues to be identified and rectified before they become a deadly situation. Thermal imaging is a common requirement of your builing insurer prior to insuring a property or renewing your policy.
