Safety switches, otherwise known as residual current devices (RCDs), are essential electrical devices which offer personal protection against electrical faults such as short circuits and overcurrents. They can help to prevent electrical caused fatalities, as well as minimising injuries such as electric shock, muscular pains, breathing difficulties, burns and heart failure caused by electrical faults.
They work through immediately shutting off supply to electricity if a fault is detected, such as when an electrical current is running down a path it shouldn’t be, e.g. a faulty wire or a person.
Do you need a Safety Switch?
Safety switches are essential for any home or workplace where electrical appliances are used. Installing one can help to minimise death and injury, making it a crucial must-have, especially as any appliance has the potential to malfunction or develop a fault, leaving you and your family at risk.
