Electrics and the Elderly

Make an electric check part of your routine this winter

  • People over 65 at greater risk of being involved in a fire
  • 80% of UK population not concerned by the safety of the electrical appliances in their elderly family member’s home.
  • 75% have never helped their relative to have their home safety checked by an electrician.

The UK’s leading registration body for electricians is urging people to think electrics when they carry out their checks on the elderly this winter.
