A safety switch will detect any loss of power associated with electric shock and stop the flow of electricity in less than 40 milliseconds, which could save your life.

    How long since you have tested your safety switch?

    They should be tested approximately every 3 months. You can do this by pressing the ‘test’ or ‘T’ button.

    The power should switch off if its working correctly.

    We found one the other day which hadn’t been installed long that wasn’t working.

    Remember that the use of safety switches doesn’t mean you need to be less careful when around electricity.
