What is an RCD?

An R CD is a safety device that disconnec ts a circuit when it detects an imbalan ce of the electric current. It wor ks on the principle that the electrici ty flowing into a circuit must be equ al to the current flowing out of a circu it. When a person receives a sho ck, it means some current is divert ed through the body directly to earth.

If the RCD detects an imbalan ce in the electrical current, indicating a leaka ge to earth, it immediately cuts t he electricity supply to prevent electrocution.

An R CD cannot detect all types of faul ts, for example if a person receiv es a shock between the active a nd neutral conductors. However, these circumstances a re rare and the vast majority of inciden ts occur between the active conductor a nd earth, which is protected by an RCD.

If a person comes in conta ct with a live electrical conductor, electrici ty flows through their body, causing an electr ic shock. Effects can vary from a tingli ng sensation or muscular pain to breathi ng difficulties, burns and heart failure.

RC Ds are extremely sensitive, disconnecting within 10 to 50 millisecon ds of detecting a leakage current. Th is is usually 30 milliamps for domest ic residences but may be lower in oth er locations such as hospitals. This sto ps the flow of electricity through someone ’s body to earth. Importantly, this respon se time is much faster than t he critical section of the cardiac cyc le and therefore significantly reduces the ri sk of death or serious injury.


RC Ds also protect against fire caused by faul ts in appliances, tools and wiring. If the se faults go undetected they could cau se a fire or personal injury. RC Ds provide a means of early fau lt detection.

RCDs are required to be fitt ed at the meter box (main switchboa rd) or distribution board for the residen ce.

Various brands of RCDs a re available; however they can all be identifi ed by the test button located on t he front of the device.

If y ou press the ‘test’ button, or t he RCD has detected an imbalance, t he on/off switch will jump to t he “off” position.

05/09/2013

In the past 17 years, 29 peop le including eight children have been electrocut ed in homes in Western Australia. Twenty-thr ee of these deaths could have be en prevented if Residual Current Devices (RC Ds) had been fitted to the pow er and lighting circuits.

Electrical hazards a re often hidden and can be difficu lt to identify, such as a sma ll hole in an extension lead or a pow er board damaged internally. Electrical accidents occ ur in an instant. RCDs are t he only device that can protect yo ur family from these hidden dangers a nd give them a second chance.

RC Ds detect an imbalance in the electric al current and disconnect the power with in 10 to 50 milliseconds, preventing electrocuti on and fire.

Installing at least t wo RCDs in your meter box or distributi on board and testing them regularly is a sma ll investment in money and time. It wi ll provide long term protection for y ou and your family against serious inju ry and death.

Safe use of electricity

Awareness of hazards

Don’t D-I-Y (do it yourself) electric al work

Doing your own electrical wo rk, or employing an unlicensed person to do it f or you, is very dangerous. You a nd your family risk electrocution or fire.

It is also illegal for an unlicens ed person to carry out electrical wo rk, including modifications to fixed wiring.

Switches, power points and light fittings

Damaged switches, power points and lig ht fittings are dangerous, and must be replac ed. However, you should never replace fittin gs and switches yourself. Use a licens ed electrical contractor to replace them. Wh en painting, never remove switches or fittin gs. Even when the switch is o ff, there are still lethal live wir es connected. Use masking tape to ke ep paint off fittings and switches.

Working in the roof space

A ro of space can be a very dangero us area. Before you enter a ro of space, switch off the electricity at t he main switch.

If you are worki ng in the roof space:
Use a tor ch to light the work areas.
Do n ot disturb or alter any electrical juncti on boxes.
Keep thermal insulation aw ay from light fittings.
If y ou see any damaged or bare wir es, call your licensed electrical contractor immediate ly.

Fuses, circuit breakers and safety switches

Fuses or circuit breakers are fou nd in the meter boxes of a ll homes, and provide protection for t he wiring in your home. Always be extreme ly careful when replacing fuses or resetti ng circuit breakers.

Safety switches, which m ay be installed in your meter b ox, are designed to protect you fr om electrocution. Safety switches turn off t he electricity very quickly if an ear th leakage or fault is detected, f or example, if you contact a li ve wire. Safety switches may also preve nt fires, by stopping current leaking direct ly to earth when a fault occurs.

EnergySafety highly recommends safety switches f or this additional level of safety.

Ev en though a safety switch offers excelle nt protection from electrocution, if you ha ve one installed, you must be ve ry careful with any form of electrici ty in your home. Contact a licens ed electrical contractor for more information.

Safety at home

Power points, plu gs and cords

Damaged or wrong ly wired plugs and cords are t he most common cause of electrical acciden ts in and around the home.

•Swit ch off the power before removing a pl ug from a power point.

•Always remo ve a plug from the power poi nt by firmly grasping the plug. Do n ot pull the cord or push yo ur fingers between the plug and t he power point. If you accidentally tou ch the pins of the plug whi le pulling it out you may recei ve an electric shock.

•Cover exposed pow er points within reach of children wi th plastic safety inserts.

•Don't wipe pow er points or switches with a w et cloth or spray them with househo ld cleaners.

•Don't attempt to repair loose, crack ed or broken power point switches. Ca ll a licensed electrician.

•Never use a doub le adaptor in a power point. If y ou need to connect more than o ne appliance to a single power poi nt, use a power board.

•Be awa re of how much current the applianc es you plug into a power boa rd may draw. If more than 10 am ps is being drawn through the pow er board, it may overheat and cau se a fire.

•Use power boards wi th overload protection, as this will preve nt it from overheating.

•Replace worn, damaged or fray ed cords, especially extension cords. Do n ot use PVC insulation tape to repa ir them.

•Unwind long cords fully befo re use to prevent overheating.

•Don't r un long cords across roads or drivewa ys because they are likely to be r un over or damaged.

•Make sure th at doors and windows do not clo se on cords.

•Don't run extension cor ds across wet grass, pool areas or w et floors.

•Use a portable safety switch un it with extension cords and power too ls.

•When using electric power tools ma ke sure that the cord is position ed so that it cannot be c ut or damaged.

Safety at home

Appliances
•Switch off applianc es when not in use and befo re removing the plug from the pow er point. Some appliances such as televisio ns may still have electricity running throu gh them even though they may appe ar to be switched off.

•Never u se a faulty appliance. If an applian ce fails to operate, blows a fu se, overheats, sparks or gives you an electr ic shock, disconnect the appliance and ha ve it checked by a licensed electric al contractor.

•Service appliances according to t he manufacturer's instructions.

•Don't leave appliances su ch as heaters, electric blankets, stoves a nd ovens on when you are n ot at home.

•Never touch appliances or switch es with wet hands.

•If an applian ce falls into water dispose of it immediate ly (remove the cord so it can 't be used again).

•Never dislodge toa st from a toaster with a met al knife or other metal objects.
