What is a residual current device?

A residual current device (sometimes referred to as an electrical safety switch) is fitted to an electrical circuit or integrated into a power point or portable unit. The device is designed to quickly switch off the electricity supply when harmful levels of electrical leakage are detected protecting workers, staff, residents and the public from injuries or death from electric shock.

Why test an RCD?

The testing of RCDs in the workplace can be carried out by a licenced electrician or competent person. Regular testing ensures:

  • the device moves freely
  • the switch hasn't become clogged with dust or debris
  • it activates in the required time to protect from shock
  • it resets when turned back on.

Installation and use

Each industry, workplace, and business will have different requirements for the installation and use of residual current devices. Speak to our experienced commercial electricians for the relevant standards for your work situation.
