Be Cautious When Installing Exterior Lighting

  • Always use a good secure ladder when installing your outdoor lights
  • Before installing always check that all lights work correctly
  • Make sure your lights are turned off when you leave the house or when you go to bed at night
  • When using extension leads make sure they are rated outdoor use
  • Always keep extension cords neatly placed and taped across walk ways as you don’t want your garden to be a hazard
  • Always choose waterproof lights
  • Never use indoor lights externally
  • Ensure outdoor trees with Christmas lights are not to near power lines

Indoor Lights 

  • Only buy lights marked with a safety standard
  • If in doubt, throw them out
  • Never overload a socket
  • Unplug all Christmas lights and electrical appliances before leaving your home and before you go to bed at night
