Consumer education

All the citizens should be educated about the right behaviour to avoid the dangers of electricity. They must realise that electricity must be treated with the respect it deserves. They should realise that living with an unsafe electrical installation and using unsafe electrical equipment cab result in an electrical accident

Home users should be encouraged to take responsibility for the maintenance of their electrical systems. They should see the practical reasons for complying rather than simply having to follow yet another regulation. 

The need for inspecting the electrical installation should not be considered as a burden, but as something obvious, related to one’s safety.

The owner should understand that an electrical installation does not remain safe and that a good earthing does not necessarily remain in a good condition.

In some countries, special teams visit the households to create awareness on preventive measures against the hazards of electricity.

The owner/user should take every opportunity to have the electrical installation assessed for safety.
