Electrical Safety First is a charity dedicated to preventing deaths, injuries and damage caused by electricity. They undertake this through a range of media campaigns to educate consumers and raise awareness of the risks from electricity – and how to avoid them. They also work with government, industry and other key stakeholders, to ensure consumer protection is always considered of paramount importance.
Electricity causes 65 deaths each year and 350,000 serious electrical shocks. Almost half of all household fires – more than 20,000 annually and with an estimated cost of almost £1 billion – are caused by electricity, with the vast majority arising from electrical appliances.
