In Queensland it is illegal for anyone but a qualified electrician to do any domestic wiring or house rewiring.

It makes sense for safety to hire a qualified electrician to carry out all your household wiring. You also risk your personal safety and the safety of your family and friends.
A safety switch detects the loss of power from the circuit, and cuts the supply of electricity in as little as 30 milliseconds – 0.003 seconds. Importantly, this response time is faster than the critical section of a heartbeat, and therefore significantly reduces the risk of death or serious injury.

It is important to remember that the times of supply are at the network provider’s discretion. On some days electricity supply may not be turned off at all.
