Ensure your work sites meet the electrical safety requirements based on the AS/NZS 2013 standard.
When used on a work site your electrical extension cords connected to power tools require the use of a Residual Current Device (RCD) or an Isolating Transformer. Both the power tools and the RCDs must be tested and tagged. If the RCD trips it is a sign of a fault. Before using the system again you will need to check the system before resetting it.
Items intended to be protected by an RCD include the following:
- Hand-held power tools such as snaders, saws, drills and grinders
- Electric lawnmowers
- Vacuum cleaners
- Extension cords
Our Lifeguard RCD Power Outlets comply to the AS/NZS 3012 and is an approved Residual Current Device (RCD). See here for more info.
