Electrical safety in your home is important

Published 18 March 2021

Each year over 1.2 million people are injured due to electrical accidents in their homes.

As a business, we now complete electrical testing every five years, in all our properties to comply with legal requirements and to keep you and your families as safe as possible. If you receive a letter or phone call to make an appointment, please allow our engineers access to complete this important work so we can ensure you are safe at home.

Faulty electrical products are a big cause of injuries in UK homes. Did you know that the success rate of an electrical product recall is only 10-20%?

This means that there are potentially millions of recalled electrical items still in UK homes. The most common items to be recalled are tumble dryers and fan heaters. These items will be used more often now the weather is colder.
