Safety at home
Electricity is part of our lives. We use it from the moment we wake up (switch on lights or boil the kettle), through the day (radio, TV, computer or vacuum cleaner) and while we sleep (alarms, electric blankets).
As a result, we can sometimes forget how powerful and dangerous electricity can be.
Please take some time to read the Electricity in the home booklet. It's a useful resource which explains some of the simple things you can do to make using electricity in your home as safe as possible.
REMEMBER: Never do your own electrical work. It's not only illegal, it's potentially fatal. Always use a licensed electrician.
