Electricity is now the number one cause of accidental fires in the UK. Government statistics show that almost half of all accidental fires in the UK are caused by an electrical accident in the home.
Domestic homes are using more and more electrical appliances than 20 years ago. With the advancement of modern technology, homeowners are more reliant on their electrical installation than ever before. From powering entertainment systems and kitchen appliances to charging mobile phones and tablets, to even charging their care. The risk of electrical accidents is becoming much greater.
Faulty and aging wiring is one of the major causes of electrical fires in the home. You can avoid these by having regular checks carried out on the condition of your cables, switches, sockets and other accessories.
A Residual current devices (RCD) is a life saving device which is designed from getting a fatal electric shock if you touch something live, such as a bare wire. It provides a level of protection that ordinary fuses or circuit breakers cannot.
If there is a fault in your electrical installation you could get an electric shock if you touch a live metal part. this is because the electricity may use your body as a live part to the earth part.
Earthing is used to protect you from an electric shock. It does this by providing a path (a protective conductor) for a fault current to flow to earth. it also causes tge protective device (either circuit breaker or fuse) to switch off the electric current to the circuit that has the fault.
It is important that any installation work carried out only by people who are competent. This means people who have the knowledge, skills and experience needed to avoid dangers to themselves and other that electricity can create.
