It seems innocent enough, but your home’s ceiling space presents some very serious dangers. So before you pop your head through that manhole, consider this!
Unsecured cabling, foil insulation and solar array cables are all very real hazards that exist in your roof. Electrical safety in your roof may not be front of mind but it is an important issue that all home owners should be aware of.
To avoid any issues, the first and most important rule to remember is to ensure your power is off at the mains before you enter the roof space.
The QLD Government also has a free information brochure for consumers as well as a serious of stickers that you can use to remind yourself and tradies to turn off the power before they enter the roof space.
