Landlords' guide to electrical safety

The Electrical Safety Council (ESC) has produced this free guide to help landlords understand their responsibilities for electrical safety in their rental properties and to provide practical advice on what is required to ensure the safety of tenants.


Its aim is to help landlords protect their tenants - and also their property - by providing essential information on electrical safety. Unlike gas installations, there is no legal requirement to check electrical services (unless the property is an HMO) but landlords nevertheless have a duty of care to their tenants because they are 'supplying in the course of business.'


Great Britain has a relatively good record of electrical safety, but in 2010 a total of 422 people died as a result of electrocution and/or fatal electric burns suffered at home, and there were 20,2842 accidental electrical fires in homes, resulting in 48 deaths and 3,324 injuries.


Download the free guide below to make sure your tenants are properly protected:
