Owners Corporations

Essential Safety Measures - Testing And Maintenance

Owners Corporations are responsible for the maintenance and regular testing of Essential Safety Measures (ESM) in buildings they manage.

Additional responsbility has been added with over 130 new regulations introduced in March 2021. The second phase of the regulations states all power outlets and lighting circuits are to be connected to:

  • switchboard-type Circuit Breaker compliant with wiring rules stated in Australian Standard AS/NZS 3000.
  • switchboard-type RCD compliant with Australian Standard AS/NZS 3190, AS/NZS 61008.1 for RCCBs (integral overcurrent protection) and 61009.1 for RCBOs (no integral overcurrent protection).

Our tradespeople have the experience and skill to help OCs with their responsibilities towards owners and residents.

What Sets Epic Inspections Apart

All our gas and electrical safety inspections are carried out by licensed electricians and gasfitters. Our tradespeople are highly experienced and skilled for the peace of mind you need and the service you deserve.

Full integration with a number of real estate management software.

Pricing for switchboard upgrades depends on the number of power outlets and lighting circuits. We will send out tradespeople to determine your property’s exact requirements and then give you a detailed quote. A certificate of safety will be issued after the work has been completed. We only use durable, industry-standard items with appropriate warranty. Detailed reports and invoices are available within a day of the job.

No surprise charges, ever. Everyone wins with Epic Inspections.
