Email Mailing List of Electricians and Electrical Contractors with postal addresses
Although the terms electricians and related contractors may in some instances be used interchangeably, there are actually a couple of points where one differs from the other. Though both may be trained to perform specific electrical works, the electrician cannot perform work publicly as a trades person unless under the employ of an electrical contractor. An electrical contractor may also be an individual or a business who possesses, aside from the technical skills, sufficient knowledge on safety such that he can apply for liability insurances for his employees as well as for his clients. In other words, the contractor takes on the added responsibility of ensuring the safety of electrical work done which he undertakes by getting a liability insurance.
Electrical contractors and electricians under their employ may perform any of the following work:
- Installation or repair of electrical appliances/air conditioning units;
- Maintenance work on processing plants;
- Installation or alteration of wiring in a building;
- Installation of switch boards or safety switches;
- Installation of power points.
The above electrical work may seem simple but if improperly handled, this may lead to very serious electrical accidents. The list of Electricians and electrical contractors contains email and mailing addresses, in general, are trained to assess the risks in every situation and act accordingly. They ensure that work is performed only in safe places and take on all precautionary measures to make sure that accidents are averted by following a set of relevant safety standards. If short-cuts are done, these open the doors for possible accidents.
Of course, there would be very simple electricity related jobs that you may perform at home even without the help of an electrician some of which are the following:
- Resetting a safety switch or circuit breaker;
- Replacing busted electrical light bulbs or tubes;
- Replacing a busted fuse;

Email Mailing Electricians and electrical contractors should never be discounted for their seeming simplicity. Even the best trained in safety procedures still figure in accidents. Therefore, when there is a question of safety, it is always in your best interest to refer to a licensed electrician who always has your safety on top of his/her mind.
