Inspection services – inspecting the electrical panel

We have, over the last 3 months, been in discussions with staff from the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services, the Ministry of Labour and regulators from the Electrical Safety Authority with regard to Home Inspectors opening the electrical panels to perform a visual inspection.

We finally received a letter this morning putting the ESA official position forward.

Remember, SAFETY FIRST.  Always use the safe inspection protocols.

If the panel:

  • has insufficient safety clearance
  • looks unsafe
  • has voltages where it shouldn’t
  • has loose items above it that might fall in when opened

Don’t open the panel.  Report it as NOT INSPECTED. Report why it wasn’t inspected and refer a licensed electrician.
