Use quality switches and outlets as these items are vital for your safety:
• Outlets equipped with automatic shutters to prevent children from inserting fingers or objects into the holes
• All plastic parts must be strong enough to withstand blows
• All lighting and power grids screwed securely to mounting brackets
All switches and outlets in your home must be protected by a 30mA Residual Current Device (RCD).

Replace faulty components:
Replace any outlets, light fittings, extension leads and appliances that are showing any signs of wear and tear, including cracks, sticking or lose switches, and split or crushed electrical leads.
If you do this on your own, always wear protective gloves, use insulated tools, and switch the power off at the switchboard.
