Go to top of pageRCD and Emergency Light Testing - Updated

Under the Electrical Safety Act 2002, there is a statutory requirement for RCD trip testing and emergency light testing to be undertaken. This testing will be undertaken by Downer Electrical. The St Lucia Campus September schedule is here and October here.

Test 1 – RCD Testing
Loss of power supply to power outlets (RCD testing), to minimise disruption this will occur from 6.00am to 8.00am (barring any failures).

The work will involve loss of power to power points, other equipment (including computer servers) and lighting. The loss of power will be for a short time approx. 10 to 20 minutes. If non-conforming devices are found, the power outage time may increase due to the time required to replace the defective device.

Test 2 – Emergency Stop Button Testing
All emergency stop buttons located in laboratories will also be tested during this time.
This may isolate both power and gases to lab floors.

Please be advised to turn off all computers and other electrical devices during this time.
Failure to do so may result in loss of work or damage to electrical equipment/devices.

Test 3 – Emergency Lighting Testing
Loss of power supply to lighting circuits between 6.00am and 3.00pm

During Exit and Emergency lighting tests disruptions will be kept to a minimum, but in some cases due to the current building design only emergency lighting will be available for the duration of the test (generally 90 minutes).

For any questions or concerns you may have regarding this schedule, please contact the relevant parties below.
Please note; Downer Electrical require a minimum of 48 hours’ notice prior to your scheduled test date for changes to occur.
