Why insurance companies should use a master electrician!
Do you deal with natural disaster insurance claims? If so, a Master Electrician can make things easier for you.
While Australia is famous for its sunny weather and laid back lifestyle…
The weather is also known to show its wild side at times.
Queensland has extreme tropical weather in particular.
Such as cyclones and flooding.
When a storm passes through, it can affect thousands of homes, restaurants and businesses.
This creates all kinds of destruction, including electrical damage.
When it comes to electricity, water damage can be deadly.
Appliances, fuse boxes and switchboards may still be physically intact after a storm…
But they’re likely to be unsafe to touch.
A Master Electrician needs to attend the site, to secure everything.
This may simply mean resetting the power and ensuring it’s safe to use.
Or it could mean rewiring the premises if needed.
Did you know a licensed electrician isn’t necessarily a Master Electrician?
An ordinary certified electrician might not follow the latest industry standards.
This means we follow strict guidelines outlined by Master Electricians Australia.
As an insurance company, you process thousands of claims every year.
You work with your electricians on a contract…
So you want to know that you’re working with fully registered electricians you can trust.
What is a Master Electrician?
We all know to work with a licensed electrician at bare minimum…
But the truth is…
Not all electricians are created equal.
If you want the best chance of working with an electrician who knows what they’re doing…
As an insurance company, you want to work with service providers you can trust.
Master Electricians Australia (MEA) is a national group that regulates the electrical industry.
Electricians can apply for accreditation with MEA.
It’s not easy to gain and keep the accreditation, which means members must meet certain standards.
When you choose an accredited member of Master Electricians Australia…
You’ll get experience, safety and quality from your electrical contractor.
Your electrician should be checked
Sure, you could go with the first local electrician you find on Google.
Maybe they have good reviews.
And their glossy marketing makes them seem above-board.
But how do you know whether their business systems are really up to scratch?
Electricians approved by Master Electricians Australia have to go through an application process.
This includes getting their credentials and systems checked.
Electricians with the wrong systems are less likely to want to undergo the check.
A review from an external authority gives you more confidence in your electrician.
So remember to always check the fine print for the Master Electrician approval.
Safety always comes first
Generally licensed electricians self-regulate themselves.
With nobody looking over their shoulder…
They may adopt a “no worries” approach to how they do things.
An electrician should have all the right tools and processes in place to work safely.
They need to protect the lives of their clients and keep themselves safe as well.
An electrician keeps everyone happy when they uphold OH&S guidelines.
An individual electrician doesn’t usually have comprehensive business systems in place…
They may follow practices that are outdated…
Or they may simply fall into a personal habit of how they do things.
When you’re sending electricians to a job through an insurance claim…
You don’t want any mucking around.
The job needs to be done right the first time.
And safety always needs to be the number one priority.
You want to know you can 100% rely on your electrician to do the right thing.
