Safety Switches

Safety Switches

Whilst there is no legislation requiring the testing of safety switches there is a recommendation from the Electrical Safety Office and Australian Standards to test them regularly.

Rental Properties: Under the Electrical Safety Act 2002 rental properties are required by law to have safety switches installed on all power circuits

Buying a property: if you buy a property without a safety switch you must install a safety switch for the power circuits within three months of a property transfer. This applies to any transfer of domestic properties.

Selling a property: Establish a safety switch is installed for power circuits. This must be declared on the standard sales contract and Form 24 Property Transfer.

Our Safety Switch inspections include:

  • Sighting / mechanical (push button) testing.
Corded Blinds

Corded Blinds

In response to the threat posed to children by cords and hanging window furnishings The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) introduced a national mandatory installation standard in 2015 to limit risk of harm.

Our technician will install tensioning devices such as cord guides or cleats and warning labels on all blinds.
Pool Safety

Pool Safety

Under Queensland’s Swimming Pool Safety Laws all pools must be included on a state-based safety register.

A pool safety certificate must be issued by a licensed pool inspector. This certificate is required when selling, buying or leasing a property with a pool.

Certificates are valid for two years (or one year for a shared pool).

Our Pool Safety Compliance inspections include:

  • Comprehensive inspection of your pool barrier
  • Free reinspection if required
  • Non- Conformity notice /report if applicable
  • Pool Safety Certificate
Meth Testing

Meth Testing

Methamphetamine (meth, crystal meth, ice, speed or P) contamination in living environments is a rapidly growing problem in Australia. Meth residue is odourless and invisible and exposure can cause a wide range of health problems.

Whether you are purchasing a home, or are a landlord in-between tenants, a meth test may be necessary to ensure the property is free of any toxic remnants that could be harmful. 

If you suspect or are concerned about a property, a meth screening test will be the first step in ensuring the property is habitable for both prospective owners and tenants.

2022 QLD LEGISLATIONS

From 1st January 2022 all rental properties in QLD MUST comply with additional smoke alarm regulations. Is your property compliant?
