Each year, Electrical Safety First works with the Home Office to promote electrical fire safety in the home. In 2023, Electrical Fire Safety Week begins on the 4th of December.
Over half of all accidental house fires are caused by electricity. And nine out of ten electrical fires are caused by electrical products.
During Electrical Fire Safety Week we work closely with the Government's Fire Kills campaign and Fire & Rescue Services across the UK to raise awareness of electrical fire risks and the simple steps that people can take to avoid a devastating fire in their homes.
Our campaigns offer general safety messages as well as focusing on areas in the home and specific types of product that offer a particular risk.
You can follow the campaign on social media with the hashtag #EFSW
