Electrical Installation – Managing Risk
Fires can have a devastating effect on businesses, ranging from disruption and productivity loss, to injuries to employees and members of the public, along with material costs and the knock-on effects of losing business.
Government statistics state that, out of more than 30,000 fires in the UK in 2017-18, 4442 were caused by faulty electrical appliances and leads, and 9,451 from misusing electrical equipment or appliances. This means that 46% of fires were due to electrical causes.
