Safety Switches

Safety switches are some of the most critical aspects of an electrical system. All Australian properties must have a specific number of them to ensure every appliance is safe for use. Around 300 people get injured, and 15 die because of unsafe electrical installations, which can be avoided if you have safety switches.

At ARC Electrical & Data, we have qualified professionals who know how vital these fixtures are. They will install the required number of switches on your property, ensuring your system is safe for use. When we handle this job, you can rest assured that the safety switches will be installed as per industry standards. We will provide you with detailed information on these fittings and how they work.

We use the best quality products and fixtures in our work so that it eliminates the possibility of electrical shocks. If you do not want to compromise on the safety of those living or working on your property, call us for safety switch installations today. We will send out a qualified electrician to assess the existing installations on your property and will provide appropriate solutions.   

What are Electrical Safety Switches?

A safety switch monitors the flow of electricity through a circuit continuously. It is sensitive to unusual activities like surges or leaks and will react immediately to these triggers. While circuit breakers also react, they are designed to protect appliances that are a part of the circuit. They don’t do much for human beings who come in contact with any component of a system. That’s why you need a safety switch because it is designed for human safety.

How Many Switches Do You Need?

This depends entirely on your current electrical system. Our trained technicians will carefully examine every aspect of it to determine how many circuits it has. In the past, residential properties needed only one safety switch, but that’s no longer considered sufficient. New standards state that you must have one switch per circuit for maximum protection.

How Do These Switches Work?

If a wire in a circuit is somehow compromised, it can shock anyone coming in contact with the attached fixtures. Electricity returning from appliances travels through a neutral wire, and it can seek out earth through a person, which causes an intense electric shock. A safety switch detects an issue within 30 milliseconds and responds by cutting off electricity immediately. This quick response helps prevents severe injuries and can also save lives.

We follow all government guidelines and the latest standards during installation, so you have a safe system.   Not only do we handle the installation of these safety switches, but also offer maintenance and inspection services. This helps to ensure the switches and all the connected fixtures are fittings are in a good condition. While we offer uncompromising quality, you will find that our services are extremely cost-effective which means you get value for money every time you hire us.

Our Customers


Excellent service. We had a difficult situation and was responded to promptly. Great communication and the team had to work in difficult weather conditions to restore our power. We highly recommend ARC electrical.


ARC are a very reliable company. They arrived when they said they would, they documented all the work that needed to be done and took photos and then sent me a quote when they said they would. The team were brilliant and professional in their work as well as advising us of outdated smoke alarms we didn’t know needed replacing (the alarm themselves had expired and we didn't know as we had just purchased the house) so they replaced them on the spot for us also. Don’t just call them for a repair u can call them if u have an electrical issue and are not sure what needs to be done as they are great in finding solutions as well.


If you want exceptional standards, fantastic communication and people who are polite and respectful then Adam and he's Off Sider are the people you want. They arrived when they said they would, they called when they said they would, they did the job and more for the quoted price - no surprises. As a single female (I know - it shouldn't matter but we know it does), I rely trades people and hope I get quality ones. I struck gold finding ARC. I most certainly use them again and highly recommend them for sure! Nice work guys.


Highly recommend ARC electrical. Had some small jobs completed around the home by Josh. On time and pleasant to deal with. Will be getting them back for more work needing to be completed soon.
