Licensed Electrical Inspectors Conduct Electrical Safety Inspections at Commercial & Residential Properties
Statutory Regulations and/or Clients may require electrical contractors to arrange for the inspection of prescribed electrical work in a home or workplace electrical inspection. Licensed Inspectors may then be required to check that the work complies with the Electrical Safety Act and the Electrical Safety Installation Regulations to endorse a Certificate of Electrical Safety.
Techsafe Electrical Inspectors perform Inspections on all the following prescribed jobs:
Solar PV Inspection
Inspect the performance of the system is at correct levels. Ensure that the system is safe for property occupants and electrical workers performing maintenance, and meets Australian Standards and Industry Regulations.
Inspect and assess the risk of electrical issues such as short circuits, overload, fire, outdated wires, or inadequate power supply for the prescribed use. Many older properties use outdated systems such as porcelain fuse boards, old wiring and no safety switch. As modern technology-based lifestyles place greater requirements for electricity, electrical inspectors find that many switchboards require upgrading to prevent overloading.
Hazardous Area Installations
Certain environments have a high risk of explosions such as fuel depots, mines, and chemical laboratories. Electrical installations must be inspected by licensed inspectors with the appropriate training and experience in controlling these risks.
Electrical Safety Inspections
Electrical Safety Inspections are recommended for commercial properties to ensure that potential electrical hazards are identified and handled appropriately. Commercial and residential properties which are more than 25 years old will most likely contain older wiring which could contain hazards such as faulty earthing or bonding, which is often found to be the cause of unexpected fires.
High Voltage Installations
High voltage electrical installations require inspection before connection or reconnection to an electricity source.
Medical and Dental Inspections
Please see Medical Equipment Testing page for further information.
Home Electrical Inspections
You may be purchasing or renovating an older home and wish to be informed of any potential electrical faults or risks which require attention. Or you may be the unfortunate victim of a house fire and wish to confirm if an electrical fault was to blame.

Electrical Design Advice and Consultancy Services
The wrong advice can risk safety and cost you extra money and time. Ensure you get it right the first time and avoid delays and re-work at the time of connection to electrical supply
Our Inspectors experience and knowledge of the Electricity Safety Act and associated Regulations, Standards and Wiring Rules is second to none. Take advantage of our expertise when preparing building plans and arranging electrical supply to your next building project.
Our team can provide confidential assistance and advice on the design of complex and multiple electrical installations and we can also liaise with the electricity distributor for you to arrange supply. This will prevent problems when arranging the final inspection, thus avoiding the need for possible re-work and the associated costs of any delays.
On Site Project Management Services
Our team of experienced licensed electrical inspectors can also provide on-site project management for complex installations to ensure compliance of electrical work to Regulations, Standards and specifications. This can include anything from assistance with High Voltage work on sites such as underground tunneling for major roads through to multiple installation developments.
Thermal Diagnostic Imaging
Our infra-red camera is used to inspect wiring and equipment to detect “hot spots” - serious electrical problems and hazards that could lead to injury, fire or plant and equipment downtime.
Unlike other conventional assessment measures our inspection occurs without interruption to plant operation. Potential equipment failure or fires can be prevented, thereby allowing you to avoid downtime and schedule targeted maintenance.
Receive a comprehensive report within days, detailing photos and thermal images prioritising items requiring attention.
Electrical Wiring and Equipment Safety Inspections
Our licensed Inspectors can identify unsafe or defective electrical wiring that may require attention to protect people and property at either a workplace or home electrical inspection. This will involve the inspection and selected testing of fixed electrical wiring and equipment including detection of dangerous leakage current.
Based on our extensive industry knowledge and expertise, we can identify any instances of non-compliance with electrical legislation, regulations, standards and codes, ensuring your business is safe and not at risk of fines, prosecution or insurance issues.
Electrical Inspection Report
Within days of the Inspection you will receive comprehensive report prioritising items requiring attention and specific recommendations on electrical work required to improve safety and ensure compliance.
