Electrical Fire Safety Week

We use electricity every day – whether we’re charging our phones, watching TV or washing our laundry, we’re tapping into a potentially dangerous source of power.

Yes, we said dangerous. Every year, half of accidental domestic fires in the UK are caused by electricity – and this figure isn’t changing. 

Even the housework isn’t safe – with over five fires a day in England caused by white goods such as tumble dryers, washing machines and dishwashers, it’s crucial that you know how to use the electrical appliances in your home safely.
