Electrical safety for older people -report

Posted by on April 22, 2015 in Home Page, Information & Advice | 0 comments

Electrical Safety First’s report, ‘A Shock to the System: Electrical safety in an ageing society’, concludes that one million people aged over 75 currently live in non-decent homes; properties that are not warm enough, in a state of disrepair or do not have modern facilities. Poor electrical safety is a particular concern – nearly two thirds of properties occupied by a couple over 60 do not meet basic electrical safety standards. Find the report here
