Did you know that half of all accidental dwelling fires are caused by
faulty or careless use of electrical appliances?
Safety week runs from 23rd – 29th January 2012 and we are providing ‘top
tips’ in the run up to that week to help keep you safe. With Christmas

laptops, hair straighteners and other electrical items as gifts. Even

them incorrectly could cause them to fail and possibly start a fire.

protection that ordinary fuses or circuit-breakers cannot provide. RCD
protection is particularly important when using electrical equipment
