Electrical Fan might cause fire hazards
All electrical work must be undertaken or carried out by a licensed electrical worker. Such work has to be tested before the supply is turned on. These include:
Do not Engage Unlicensed Electrician
It is not advisable to employ an electrician who is not licensed and not under any license as they have experience but are not competent for electrical work. There have been too many cases that surfaced in less than a decade. More than five lives have been lost to electrocution on the mainstream news. We have no idea the total amount of life loss.
We have thought about the question below.
Why do consumers purchase or use the service of an unlicensed electrician?
1) Price because most of them are experienced electricians but charge way lower, like 50-80% lower than the Market Rate. Example: Majority of the consumer is price caution they just want some one to prescribe medicine or do surgeries. They Do Not Care about are they Doctor or Butcher. As long they do the work.
The Fear of losing out
2) Social DIY Group influences everyone. Peer pressure to want to feel good with friends, exhibit the strength they overcome, and enjoy the cheers and wow the second of fame. But if it comes to electrical, there is danger and higher risk involved, and they are unaware of it. We have meet owners who put loved ones in danger just because of feeling good on social media. That is not wrong, but it is the way human is.
3) Lack of document support. Singapore is all law by law. Yes, it is very rigid for electrical work belonging to the dangerous trade that can cause harm to humans and livestock or better loss of property. Recently the news has surfaced that three lives have been lost, and the person who does the electrical work is not to be found.
