Electricity is used everywhere in our homes and workplaces and we would find life very difficult, even impossible without it.

 

Imagine no lighting, heating, cooking, or that all important phone charger - how would you cope?

Although electricity is fundamental to life as we know it, it is also potentially very dangerous. It is extremely important that you are aware of the safety precautions needed to ensure its safe use.

From overloaded extension leads and cheapie chargers, through to white goods and other appliances not fit for purpose, issues with electrical items are a very common cause of fire.

Whether you own or rent your home or business premises, it's important to know the signs of a potential electrical problem. Look out for scorch marks, flickering lights, hot plugs and sockets, fuses that blow or circuit-breakers that trip for no obvious reason. These could all be signs of loose or dangerous wiring. If in doubt get them checked by a qualified electrician – remember if you are a tenant, you have a legal right to ask this of your landlord.

 

So how can you reduce the risks and keep you, your family, employees, or visitors safe?
