What is an Electrical Contractor?

An electrical contractor is any person, business or company that has been registered by Energy Safe Victoria (ESV) to perform electrical work for profit. In other words, to charge for electrical work in Victoria, you need to be a Registered Electrical Contractor.

Why it's important to use electrical contractors

Electricity can be fatal if not installed correctly. In 2019/20, there were 8 deaths from electrocution in Australia, with 3 of those being in Victoria. Whilst we have seen a reduction in the number of deaths in the last 20 years, it is still an issue. So why would you take the risk of using someone who may incorrectly do electrical work around your home or business. The best way to prevent this is to use a registered electrical contractor.

This is why a licensing system has been established, to ensure only qualified, knowledgeable and experienced electricians are able to safely complete electrical work. In order to become a REC, the contractor must have the appropriate experience, technical and business knowledge and the demonstrated skills to undertake electrical installation work. This demonstrates that the contractor has the knowledge and skills to do a competent and reliable job.

You should always make sure you're using a registered electrical contractor (REC) to ensure any electrical work being done is carried out using the correct safety protocols.

How do I know if my electrical contractor is registered?

The most important step in ensuring you're using a registered electrical contractor is to:

Ask for a registration number as all registered electrical contractors can be found on the Energy Safe Victoria website, listed under their business name and/or licence number. If they refuse to provide you with one or simply do not have one, they are most likely not registered and should not be used.

1st Call Electrical Services is a proud to be a licensed electrical contractor with our registration number (REC-18338) easily found in the footer of our website.
