Electrical safety checks

In 2016 an Electrical Safety Device program was commenced to ensure that all of the properties we own or manage are compliant with safety regulations.

The program has seen licensed electricians inspecting properties and conducting any remediation that may have been needed.

The inspections have checked that;

  • Lighting and power outlet circuits are protected by RCDs.
  • Smoke alarms are hardwired, correctly located and not over 10 years old.
  • A main earth is protecting the electrical installation.

The program is nearly complete and the majority of our tenants should by now have had their home checked.  If you have not heard from us to date, rest assured that your inspection will take place in the near future.

If you have any questions about this program please contact repairs@foundationhousing.org.au.
