Electrical Safety throughout the Festive Season

As we get into the festive season a bit earlier it seems this year, please take a moment to consider a few electrical safety warnings;

  • No matter how tempting it is to squeeze another socket in to ‘make do’ these can quickly over heat and cause fire.
  • Check your lights conform to British Standards
  • All outdoor lights should use an RCD (Residual Current Device which switches off power instantly)
  • Fitting an outside power socket is a preferable and safer alternative to putting a power supply in a plastic bag!
  • Unplug lights before going to bed
  • Check the battery in your smoke alarm regularly
