Safety Switch vs Circuit Breaker

Safety switches are often confused with circuit breakers and fuses, but they perform different tasks.

  • Safety Switches monitor the flow of electricity through a circuit and turn off the power in a fraction of a second if a leakage of current is detected and they provide personal protection against electric shock.
  • Circuit Breakers protect an electrical circuit by quickly cutting power when there is a high current fault or overload that may cause a hazard.

That’s why ‘The Risk is real – One safety switch may not be enough’ campaign is very important information everyone should know.

Since 1 July 2009, there have been 29 electrical fatalities in Queensland, ten involving domestic sub-circuits. This is why the Queensland Government has launched ‘The risk is real – one safety switch may not be enough’ electrical safety campaign.

The campaign aims to raise community awareness of the importance of having electrical safety switches installed on all circuits in the home.

So, at Powerhouse AC & Electrical, we have made it simple for our customers to be sure with no obligation.
