Choosing and using a tradesperson
As Victoria’s energy safety regulator, ESV’s principal role is to ensure the safe and efficient supply of energy to all Victorians. This includes providing the community with information and resources on the safe use of electricity and gas, including ensuring that tradespersons who undertake work on domestic and commercial properties are appropriately registered and have the right experience to carry out the work safely and to the standards expected.
You can, and should, ask to see a tradesperson’s licence.
Never do your own electrical or gasfitting work
Always engage a registered electrical contractor for any type of electrical work or a licensed or registered gasfitter for any gasfitting work.
Remember DIY = DIE.
In this section ESV provides information for consumers and the broader community about choosing and using a tradesperson, including links to our ‘Find a tradie’ service for electrical professionals and how to make a complaint about a tradesperson. Click on the links below to access these pages:
