Electricity is both a bane and a boon. When the world was first introduced to the magic of electricity, the sources of harnessing this great power were quite primitive and dangerous regarding safety. The arrival of The National Grid saw a renaissance in the supply of safe and reliable electrical energy to millions of people. It was the coming of age for electricity supply for all homes and buildings.

Nowadays, with the advancement in technology, people too have evolved and their power source no longer solely depends on the National Grid. Many buildings have installed solar panels or wind turbines for generating electricity according to their needs. It ensures an environment friendly and safe method of harnessing 24-hour electricity.

Now, electricity use has become quite safe, with UK leading the pack in electrical safety, using the 3-pin plug. But a shocking revelation is made by the study conducted by the Electrical Safety Council. Most of the houses in the UK are prone to electrical hazards and accidents and that too quite frequently. This can be attributed to blunt ignorance regarding the rules and regulations for electrical safety. Further, some revelations that are disturbing:

  • Use of faulty sockets and plugs
  • Ignorance of burning smell coming from plugs when an appliance is in use
  • Attempting repairs when the appliance is in use
  • Improper maintenance of electrical appliances and sockets

The statistics reveal that at least one person succumbs to electrical accidents in the UK each week and 1000 are injured due to electrical hazards. This very shocking fact forces us to think whether we have really progressed or are still the same.
