How to find your next electrician

When building or renovating your office or commercial building it is crucial that any electrical work is done by a qualified electrician. Not only is unlicensed electrical work illegal within Australia, it carries significant danger of fire, electrocution or electric shock, and can also void your insurance should an incident occur. As a result, hiring a qualified and professional electrician is imperative to any commercial or retail electrical jobs; however, it can be challenging to know if the electrical company you’re engaging with will complete their tasks to a professional standard.

There are a few things to look out for to help take the guesswork out of finding your next commercial electrician in Brisbane.

Your electrician utilises up-to-date techniques and materials

Incorporating up-to-date techniques and information into their work is indicative of a conscientious electrician, staying on top of industry updates and news and ensuring their training is reflective of the industry standard. Utilising new and innovative materials and resources within their work ensures that your commercial electrical services are completed with longevity and quality in mind, and includes the safest materials available. 

Your electrician is accredited with the relevant licensing and insurance 

Arguably the most important factor to look for when hiring your next commercial electrician is ensuring that their staff have the required qualifications and accreditations or are training under an appropriate trade school. Moreover, any professional electrical company will ensure that any trainees are supervised and complete  jobs to their level of skill and qualification, not beyond. In addition to the required qualifications, your electrical company should also have the necessary business insurance to provide you with peace of mind that should anything go awry, they are covered. Finally, ensuring the electrical company you choose to complete your work should be a registered business and be trading under the appropriate and required industry regulations. Any reliable and legitimate company should be able to answer any questions regarding their qualifications, training, and industry regulations.

Your electrician can perform installations and maintenance 

Any quality electrical company should be well versed in a variety of services, including both installations and maintenance. Should you encounter any issues in the future, you want your electrical company to have the skills to service their work, saving you the hassle of having to find an alternative company. Whilst some companies may specialise in certain areas such as solar installation, for standard retail and commercial electrical services, your electrician’s skills should extend to installation and maintenance of standard and common services. 

Your electrician is knowledgeable on a wide range of electrical services 

An experienced and qualified commercial electrician should be able to provide knowledge on a wide range of electrical services, and should be able to provide you with answers on any questions you may have. From basic electrical services to more complex tasks, your electrician should lead with confidence, backed by experience and knowledge. 

Safety is your electrician’s first priority

Above all else, safety should always be the number one priority for any electrician. With the risks associated with the role, necessary precautions should always be taken to ensure the safety of not only the tradesman, but additionally the client and any surrounding homes or buildings. All commercial electrical services should be conducted in accordance with workplace health and safety policies, and all staff should be trained in identifying hazards and controlling risks. Additionally, a quality electrical company will regularly conduct staff safety assessments and offer ongoing training and support for all employees to ensure the competence of all staff.
