Government -Statistics

Government figures estimate  that there are around 10 fatal (Death) and 2,000 non-fatal electric shock accidents in the home each year.

19 fatal (Death) and 880 non-fatal shock accidents a year in the workplace.

There are about 12,500 electrical fires in homes across the UK each year.

In March 2006 the Electrical Safety Council published the results of their National Consumer Survey and found that:

  • 42% of consumers surveyed stated they had never had their electrics checked
  • 32% of consumers surveyed who do DIY stated they had experienced one or more electric shocks while carrying out DIY
  • 35% of consumers surveyed said their electrics are over 15 years old and a further 21% stated they had no idea how old they were
  • 48% of those surveyed did not know that their electrics should be checked at least every 10 years

    Customer called because of a burning smell in the house.  Hmm very burnt!!

       
Existing old panel                                                Cover off view                                                            New RCD modern panel fitted
Note PME (TN-C-S) NO Main Earth                A typical old mains panel                                             Main earth installed with + RCD
 

This house mains panel was as I found it on arrival.  I have marked several faults.                 Here is the new panel completed and yes the lid fitted perfectly. :-)

Not only was the RCD shorted out but there was no lid to cover this mess.

 

  Portable Appliance Testing - This was found at an office, plugged in and switched ON

 

  Just 1 of the many faults found whilst tracing a Neutral to Earth fault, whilst carrying out an EICR (PIR)

     Emergency call early 1 Sunday morning..... Doh.  Still, had them up and running in no time.

  Loose connection in plug burnt off pin and melted in socket
