What you need to know about electrical safety?:
Every year around 70 deaths and 350,000 injuries in UK homes are caused by faulty electrics and electrical equipment. Almost half of all domestic fires are caused by electricity, and DIY errors cause half of all serious electric shocks in UK homes.
What is Co-op Homes doing to keep me safe?
Before we let out one of our own properties, we carry out electrical installation check and confirm its safe. We have a programme to re-inspect every rented property at least every five years and carry out any necessary repairs or remedial work. We only use qualified registered electricians to carry out electrical works and we make sure any electrical work complies with Building Regulations.
You can help us keep you safe by allowing us into your home to carry out the electrical test or any other repairs needed. Don’t do it yourself - DIY wiring or electrical repairs can lead to electrical parts overheating, causing fires, shocks and death.
