Did you know that many UK online buying and selling platforms are not bound by the same laws and regulations as the more traditional retailers?
You could be putting your life, your home, or the lives of your loved ones at risk by purchasing counterfeit electricals!
When shopping for electrical products, your safest bet is to opt for high street retailers or branded supermarkets. This is usually safer due to these companies having contracts with suppliers of large companies who produce original electricals, therefore would need to undergo strict testing and quality controls.
Electrical Safety First (a campaigning charity that aims to reduce deaths/injuries caused by electricity in UK homes) have started an online petition to stop the sale of dangerous electricals on online marketplaces such as Amazon and eBay. Safety Checked fully support this campaign.
