Electrical Risk Assessment (ERA)
It's like a MRI for your home.
We want you to know what's lurking behind your walls before it's too late!
The first step to an electrically safe home is to speak with us.
At Birnie HomeSAFE the safety of our workers and you the homeowner has and always will be our #1 priority.
All of our employees are screened on a daily basis for Covid 19 signs or symptoms.
All of our clients are screened via a 2 step process,
1) with a questionnaire by our office prior to our visit and
2) when our electrician arrives on site before they enter the home to work.
We are committed to wearing Masks (we use 3 ply disposable), maintain 2m minimum of physical separation, wash hands and sanitize our tools, equipment and our work environment.
We must do everything we can to stop the spread of COVID 19

What is an Electrical Risk Assessment? Watch to find out!
“We want to give homeowners a better understanding of how their home's electrical systems work. More important, we want to make them aware of warning signs that they may be at risk.”
