Why It's Important To Use Electrical Contractors

When it comes to electrical work, hiring a licensed electrical contractor is essential for safety, quality, and legal compliance. DIY electrical projects can be extremely dangerous, leading to electrical shocks, fires, and even serious injury.

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. So why would you take the risk of using someone who may incorrectly do electrical work around your home or business? This is why a licensing system has been established, to ensure only qualified, knowledgeable and expert electricians are able to safely complete electrical work.

Electrical contractors possess the expertise and experience necessary to navigate complex electrical systems, identify potential hazards, and adhere to the strict safety standards mandated by Victorian law. Moreover, they ensure that your electrical installations meet all code requirements, preventing future problems and protecting the value of your property.

By choosing a licensed electrical contractor, you gain peace of mind knowing that your electrical work is being handled by qualified professionals committed to safety, quality workmanship, and your complete satisfaction.

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.
