Safety

Electricity is dangerous so safety is our top priority. We want to help you recognise the dangers and stay safe.

We are committed to the safety of our staff and customers. Coming into contact with the electricity network results in serious injuries or even fatalities. This has a far reaching and devastating effect on family, friends and colleagues.

Our campaign aims to support safe working, promote safe behaviours and encourage the sharing of information and knowledge and highlight the real risks of coming into contact with electricity.

Flooding and Electricity

If flood water does enter your property our advice is to switch off the electricity at the mains, if it’s safe to do so. Do not touch any electrical equipment, switches or sockets when standing in water or if the electrical equipment is wet, damp or has been flooded and the electricity is on.

Flood water may damage our electrical equipment as well as the internal wiring in the property. Once the water has cleared, please call our free emergency 24 hour number: 0800 31 63 105 or simply 105. Download our 'Typical domestic power supply' PDF guide to help you identify our equipment and your electricity supplier's equipment.

Please visit the GOV.UK website for more flood advice.
