The Electrical Safety Council published the results of their National Consumer Survey and found that:
- 59% of people do not use qualified electricians when carrying out electrical work
- 42% of those surveyed stated they had never had their electrics checked
- 32% of people undertaking DIY stated they had experienced one or more electric shocks
- 48% of those surveyed did not know that their electrics should be checked at least every 10 years.
Part P of the Building Regulations has enhanced the protection of homeowners and reduced the risk of electric shock when using electricity. The law, which applies to England and Wales, aims to improve electrical safety in the home and prevent the number of accidents which are caused by faulty electrical work.
