Electrical safety around the home

One of ESV’s roles is to educate and inform the community about safety issues with gas and electricity, to improve overall safety outcomes for people, property and the environment.

Gas and electricity are inherently dangerous and it’s illegal and potentially fatal for unlicensed and unqualified people to undertake any electrical or gasfitting work.

Homeowners and consumers must always use qualified and licensed electrical professionals.
