  • Check electrical leads and plugs for wear and tear and faulty wiring. Frayed leads or exposed internal wires are fire risks.
  • Never buy an electrical appliance without knowing it is safe to use.New appliances should have the British or European safety mark on it.If the appliance is second-hand,always have it checked by a qualified electrician before you use it.

  • Don’t overload sockets – use one plug in each socket.

  • Watch out for hot plugs and sockets, fuses that blow for no reason, flickering lights, and scorch marks on sockets or plugs.
