Commercial and Residential Electrical Safety Inspections
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 electrical inspections on:
Solar PV Inspection
We inspect that your solar system is performing at correct levels. We also ensure that the system is safe for occupants and electrical workers performing maintenance by meeting Australian Standards and Industry Regulations.
Inspections assess the risk of electrical equipment issues such as short circuits, overloads, fire, outdated wiring or inadequate power supplies. Many older properties contain outdated electrical systems such as porcelain fuse boards or old wiring without safety switches. 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 reviewed by licensed inspectors with 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. Home or business properties which are more than 25 years old will most likely contain older wiring. This 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. A pre purchase inspection identifies potential electrical faults or risks which require attention. Additionally, 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 be a safety risk and cost extra money and time. Our electrical design services can avoid delays and costly re-work at the time of connection to electrical supply.
Our highly trained Inspectors are experts with the Electricity Safety Act and Regulations, Standards and Wiring Rules. Take advantage of our expertise when preparing building plans and arranging electrical supply to your next building project, ensuring the project is designed right the first time.
Our team of experienced electricians can also provide confidential assistance and advice on the design of complex and multiple electrical installations. We can also liaise with the electricity distributor for you to arrange supply. Prevent problems when arranging the final inspection, 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. This ensures compliance of electrical work to Regulations, Standards and specifications. This can include anything from assistance with High Voltage work, such as underground tunnelling 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”. These are 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.
Upon inspection, you’ll receive a comprehensive report within days, detailed photos and thermal images prioritising items requiring attention.
Electrical Wiring and Equipment Safety Inspections
Our licensed inspectors can identify unsafe or defective electrical wiring. This may require attention to protect people and property at either a workplace or home electrical property inspection. This will involve the inspecting and testing of fixed electrical wiring and equipment including detection of dangerous leakage current.
We can identify any instances of non-compliance with electrical legislation, regulations, standards and codes. Our extensive industry knowledge and expertise ensures 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. You’ll also receive specific recommendations on electrical work required to improve safety and ensure compliance.
