RCD TESTING

CEC Callaghan Electrical Contractors implements a schedule for clients based on AS3760 that test the RCDs (Safety Switches) in the switchboard.  RCD testing is an integral part of electrical testing to Australian Standards that is too often over-looked.

Electrical contractors issued safety warning

The National Electrical and Communications Association (NECA) has issued a reminder to all electrical contractors that no apprentice should undertake live electrical work without supervision under any circumstances.

The peak Australian electrical industry body released a statement to media yesterday in the wake of two separate incidents involving young apprentices, reminding employers that they have a duty of care to apprentices in their workplace.

NECA spokesperson James Tinslay said that only fully qualified electricians should be carrying out unsupervised electrical work, adding that it is a legal requirement that apprentices are suitable monitored when undertaking any activity on a job site.

“All electrical apprentices are under a contract of training which usually has a four year duration. During this time they need, by law, supervision which will vary depending on the experience and skills of the apprentice,” Mr Tinsley stated.

The safety warning comes as Workplace Health and Safety Officers investigate several instances of electrocution on worksites, one of which involved the death of a 20-year-old apprentice electrician while working at a Queensland school.

EARTH TESTING

Over time, corrosive soils with high moisture content, high salt content, and high temperatures can degrade Earthing rods and their connections. So although the Earthing system when initially installed had low Earth ground resistance values, the resistance of the Earthing system can increase if the Earth rods have been affected by any of the previous mentioned hazards.

As part of a sites electrical maintenance management plan, CEC Callaghan Electrical Contractors will conduct Earth testing measure the ground Earth resistance of all electrical installations.

THERMAL IMAGING

CEC Callaghan Electrical Contractors, uses infrared Thermography for condition monitoring of equipment such as motors, switchboards or any other plant and equipment. The process is used to fault find not only electrical faults but any mechanical stresses.

Thermal imaging helps to:

  • Prevent costly down-time
  • Prevent fire/explosion
  • Ensure the integrity of all components
  • Determine loading condition of equipment
  • The visual inspection of each switchboard will help determine its condition: ie broken door hinges, excessive heat, build-up of dust/dirt, vermin proof, unsafe condition or discoloration of components, condition of legend, clear local access area, etc.
  • If faults are found personnel can plan repairs as necessary, at a planned time without a costly breakdown
    Reports containing documentary evidence of survey results, are provided with each audit.

SMOKE ALARM TESTING

Smoke alarm testing is an often-overlooked component of safety standard compliance. CEC Callaghan Electrical Contractors can offer a maintenance plan for any building supervisor or real estate agent that needs the peace of mind that all smoke alarms are tested and certified with electronic paperwork on file.

LED LIGHTING AND ENERGY SAVING AUDITS

Installing LED lighting can reduce your lighting costs up to 85%.

LED lights can now replace halogen down lights and most fluorescent fittings.

Energy audits assist industrial companies or facilities in understanding how they use energy and help to identify the areas where waste occurs and where opportunities for improvement exist. This guidebook provides step-by-step guidelines that can be easily followed even by those who have not previously conducted energy audits. These guidelines are developed in a manner that can be used by both in-house auditors who are auditing their own plant and outside consultants who are hired to do an energy audit.

An energy audit is a key to assessing the energy performance of an industrial plant and for developing an energy management program. The typical steps of an energy audit are:

  • preparation and planning
  • data collection and review
  • plant surveys and system measurements
  • observation and review of operating practices
  • data documentation and analysis
  • reporting of the results and recommendations

CEC Callaghan Electrical Contractors can begin with some simple steps that are relatively cost-effective such as replacing existing lighting with LED lighting or Lighting controls. Lights can be shut off during non-working hours by automatic controls, such as occupancy sensors which turn off lights when a space becomes unoccupied. Manual controls can also be used in addition to automatic controls to save additional energy in smaller areas. The payback period for lighting control systems is generally less than 2 years.

For larger site a more comprehensive plan will be developed.

EMERGENCY/EXIT LIGHT TESTING & INSTALLATION

CEC Callaghan Electrical Contractors conduct a six monthly and 12 monthly emergency/exit light testing procedures as required by AS2293.2. If any areas require the installation of emergency or EXIT luminaires CEC Callaghan Electrical Contractors can quote on the installation of any work needed.
