Electrical safety first: there could be a hidden killer in 76% of UK homes

19 February 2018

Would you let someone into your home if there was a chance that they could injure or even kill you?

If the answer is no, then why are 76% of people in the UK bringing electrical appliances into their homes without registering them?

Registering your product makes it possible for the manufacturer to easily get in touch with you if it turns out that the item you’ve bought is somehow faulty or dangerous. With thirteen fires a day across the UK caused by faulty and recalled electrical goods, Electrical Safety First, a UK based charity, are urging people to spend a few minutes registering their products as soon as they get them home.

If you’re worried that you could have a faulty appliance lurking in your home, visit electricalsafetyfirst.org.uk/recall to check whether a specific electrical item has been recalled in the past.
