General Condition of electrical installation

  • Please state:

Exit Checks

  • MEN connection intact

  • Switchboard secure.

  • Main switch and circuit protection returned to original state.

  • Tools and equipment returned to vehicle.

  • Person in control advised of departure.

Sign Off

  • Electrician:

  • Electrical safety check is carried out in accordance with AS/NZS Standards, we are not liable for any assessments carried out, or information contained within, as some installations will be applicable to previous standards.
    Note: cabling that is contained within the fabric of the building has not been checked.
    Approximately 10% of the electrical installation has been checked to give an approximate indication of the safety of the electrical installation

Smoke Alarms

  • All smoke alarm are correctly installed and in working condition; and have been tested according to the manufacturer's instructions.

  • Next smoke alarms check is due by:
