Ten Tips To Help You Choose An Electrician Ask your friends and neighbors for a recommendation. Word of mouth is often the best way to make sure you get the job done well. If you can't get a recommendation, use the Internet or local press or business directory to find a local electrician for small jobs. Phone three or four electricians or electrical contractors to get full quotes so that you know what the total cost should be before the work begins. For example, is there a call-out charge or an hourly rate? Are all materials included in the quote? Don't go on price alone. Ask whether the electrician or electrical contractor guarantees their work and corrects any work that does not meet applicable standards. Look for an electrician who is a specialist in the type of electrical work you need--security or communications. Find out whether your local electrician is independent or works as a local agent of a national company or contractor. The latter can sometimes be more expensive than independent electricians but you have the added confidence that comes from knowing that the parent company has vetted the electrician and is happy to allow him or her to work under their name. Check that the electrician holds a valid license for the jurisdiction in which the work will be carried out, and that he or she is registered. Check that your electrician has public liability insurance in case of an accident while working on your electrical jobs. Ask for references. This doesn't have to rule out electricians who are new to the profession. An electrician can be competent without having much experience--a newly qualified electrician should be able to provide references from his or her training provider. Check with the Better Business Bureau to find out whether there are any complaints or negative comments against the electrician or contractor. Listen to what your instincts are telling you. If you don't know much about electrics, you have to trust that your electrical contractor or electrician knows what he or she is doing and isn't overstating the extent of the work required in order to overcharge. If you don't feel confident, go with someone else. licensed electrical contractor

Why You Need a Licensed Electrician

Who would have thought getting a tree removed could be such a headache! I hear this time and time again from homeowners all across the country, who are trying to get their trees lopped or removed by a professional at a reasonable price. So what’s so hard? Most go straight for the local paper, find a couple of tree contractors promoting their service and away they go. That'll be fine, Right? Well not so fast.You see, there are tree loppers and there are arborists. The difference is massive and could potentially save you thousands in property damage and or personal injury.... Let me explain.                   The Industry The tree lopping industry is one of Australia's top 10 most dangerous industry (it actually comes in at #5 just after construction), but if you look at it from deaths per 1000 workers, it's actually the most deadly industry in Australia. The scary part is, you don't need a licence to operate as an arborist! It's a completely unregulated industry. If you were to hire an electrician or a plumber to do some handy work at your house, they would need to be licensed to do so. They would need to have been through the proper training and license numbers are issued to qualified individuals who have completed the training. The industry is also monitored closely as to not allow 'shonky' tradesmen operate. Being such a niche market, the money you can earn pruning or removing dangerous suburban trees is comparable to what a doctor or lawyer might earn… They don’t call them tree doctors for nothing! But seriously, for a large tree to be removed you are looking at $2000 - $4000 depending on the size and location of the tree. With the right equipment, a good crew can be finished with 1 large job by 11 AM and onto the next after lunch. This results in a large number of what the industry professionals call "cowboys" who don't know what they are doing and take unnecessary risks through ignorance, lack of experience or just plain stupidity. This results in a high number of personal injury and property damage cases being reported on a weekly basis. And if you hired one of these unqualified cowboys and damage was done to your property... you'd be left to clean up the mess and pay for potentially tens of thousands of dollars in repairs. How to avoid 'shonky' contractors?  You make sure that every Tree Lopper that quotes your job has these 3 things: 1. A certificate II (minimum) in Arboriculture 2. 5 million in public liability insurance3. 5 years experience (minimum) As the community is waking up to the dangers to hiring an unqualified arborist, more and more homeowners are beginning to ask for the above as a minimum requirement during the quoting process. And the true arborists are happy to comply. In fact must are starting to hand over proof of qualification and insurance with every quote they do. What else to look for Now that you have ascertained that your arborist is actually an arborist and is capable of doing the work, there are a few more little things you can look for to be sure he or she is a great arborist. Informative assessment - Arborists love sharing their knowledge, so when you present your tree they should be able to tell you what species it is (both common name and Latin name) and also some details about why it's sick or how they are going to trim/ remove and why etc.  Communication - There is nothing more frustrating when you are trying to contact a contractor and they won’t answer their phone. Or when they do and you make arrangements to meet, they are late or worse yet, they don't turn up at all. If you’re not worth their time or their courtesy, then more on. Now with the power of the knowledge above you are in a great position to select a fantastic tree contractor for your job with minimum risk of property damage and maximum chances it will be a good experience.

Why You Need a Licensed Electrician

According to a study done by the Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2,287 U.S. workers died and 32,807 sustained lost-time injuries from electrical shock or burn injuries between 1992 and 1999. Of these 32,807 non-fatal injuries involving lost time, 38 percent were classified as electrical burns. Each injury caused an average of 13 days away from work, and nearly one fatality occurred every day of the year. While this study is several years old, it's still relevant today because we continue to face the same issues with electrical shock and burn injuries. Here are two regulatory updates issued in response to this problem, with guidance on providing a safe workplace: OSHA Electrical Standard Update, Subpart S of 29 CFR Part 1910 OSHA, in the proposed rule, explains the reason for the update. OSHA undertook the project to revise 29 CFR Part 1910, Subpart S, for two major reasons. First, OSHA wanted the standard to reflect the most current practice and technology in the industry. Second, in implementing the rule, OSHA responded to requests from stakeholders to revise Subpart S so it reflects more recent editions of NFPA 70, the National Electrical Code, and NFPA 70E, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace. According to OSHA's press release of Feb 13, 2007, "The changes to OSHA's general-industry electrical-installation standard focus on safety in designing and installing electrical equipment in the workplace. Included in the new standard are a new alternative method for classifying and installing equipment in Class I hazardous locations and new requirements for ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs). The 2000 edition of the NFPA 70E was used as a foundation for the revised standard. The final rule also replaces the reference to the 1971 National Electrical Code in the mandatory appendix to the powered-platform standard with a reference to OSHA's new electrical-installation standard." The final rule becomes effective Aug. 13, 2007. To read OSHA's "Safety and Health Topics" for electrical, visit http://www.osha.gov/SLTC/electrical/ index.html. Navy Electrical Update Navy photo by MC3 Marvin E. Thompson, Jr. The Navy is ahead of OSHA in updating electrical-safety standards. The Navy updated the Tri-Services Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) 3-560-01, with Change 1, "Electrical Safety, Operations and Maintenance (O&M)," to meet the requirements of NFPA 70E 2004. This UFC supersedes UFC-3-560-10N (previously MIL-HDBK-1025/10), Safety of Electrical Transmission and Distribution Systems, referenced in OpNavInst 5100.23G. It incorporates tri-service requirements into one unified document and provides electrical-safety requirements for all shore electrical-work activities (low and high voltage) and addresses implementing NFPA 70E 2004 arc-flash criteria for electrical safety. An updated version of OpNav P-45-117-6-98, Electrical Worker Field Safety Guide, incorporating the requirements of this UFC, is being developed and should be available in the near future. Remember, regulations always are the minimum requirements to ensure worker safety. OSHA's 29 CFR 1910, Subpart S, and the Tri-Service UFC provide guidance to help ensure your command's electrical workers have a safe workplace. You always can take more steps to further protect yourself and your fellow workers.

Interesting Facts about Electrical Power

Your home needs juice, and a generator is there to either provide full power or auxiliary power when your city's electric network goes down. Keeping that in mind, there is a wide variety of generators available, depending on your home's needs. What you want to do is install a high-quality generator which can cover your entire home. This means that, the more juice your home consumes, the more powerful your generator needs to be. You also need to take good care of price-per-quality ratio, because not all generators on the market will provide you for the equal amount of time, or equally reliable. In order to suit the load under which the generator will work, you need to have an optimal rate of frequency, power and voltage. On top of that, it is important that you let an expert do this. Not only do you need to acquire it from an authorized generator dealer, you need to hire a qualified electrician to do the hard work as well. They will also know more about the information mentioned above. The dealer will be able to deliver your product to your home, as well as provide useful information on an optimal placement location. While the latter can also be done by a qualified electrician, you also need one to install it into that location properly, as well as recommend (or even provide) a decent fuel source and appliances. An auxiliary generator will also require a transfer switch. When choosing a generator, it is important to know whether you need a stand-alone generator or an auxiliary power source. A stand-alone generator, also known as a home energy station by some manufacturers, will provide your home with electricity independently of your local power plant. On the other hand, an auxiliary generator, also known as a standby or backup generator by some manufacturers, will provide your home with power during an outage. Your electrician will also need to connect the generator to a fuel source, be it gas (plumber, propane, etc.) or otherwise -you need to check with your local gas company. To conclude, in order to install a generator to your home, you need to take care of its quality, the load it can take, the purpose you need it for, and most importantly, your own safety.
