Electricity can kill. Government statistics show that most fires in UK homes are caused by electrical products and installations.
Electricity is now the major cause of accidental fires in UK homes. In 2007 this resulted in 49 deaths and 3,477 injuries. There were also 19 deaths and 2,788 injuries caused by electric shocks in homes. Because of this we support any initiative that could help to identify unsafe electrical installations or appliances.
