The Electrical Safety Council is a UK charity that’s dedicated to keeping people safe by reducing the risk of electrical accidents around the home and in the work place. We are supported by all sectors of the electrical industry as well as local and central government and work to promote safety and good practice.
In addition to running general awareness campaigns and events to help educate consumers about the dangers of electricity, we also run campaigns and initiatives covering specific areas of risk, such as safety in rented accommodation.
Research from the Electrical Safety Council has found that, as the number of people becoming landlords soars, misunderstandings between landlords and tenants over responsibilities for safety are exposing many people to life-threatening electrical dangers. The ESC has therefore produced a short, user-friendly guide for landlords to help them meet their legal responsibilities in relation to electrical safety.
