Gas appliances safe, electrics might be?
Ever wondered why gas appliances and installations in private rented homes have to have an annual safety check but electrical appliances and wiring do not!
One private tenant has already lost their life to a combination of a faulty appliance and no earthing (see http://KeepRentingSafe.weebly.com). Private tenants are disproportionately affected by electric shocks in their homes and that more one fifth of all private tenants already report concerns with electrical safety in their home.
Compulsory periodic inspection and testing of electrical appliances and wiring is long overdue!
