To help increase consumer awareness of electrical safety issues in and around the home, the Council had produced a 15 minute video entitled
How safe is your home?
The video draws attention to the electrical safety hazards that can be found in a typical family home, ranging from fire, electric shock
and overloading of circuits, to the use of electrical equipment in bathrooms and outdoors, and explains how to avoid becoming a victim of those hazards.
Amongst other things, the video also explains what the functions of fuses, circuit breakers and RCDs are, recommends the use of competent electricians rather than doing it yourself, and draws attention to the need
for electrical installations to be inspected and maintained periodically.
Single copies of the video (in DVD format) are available on request to:[email protected]
