Shoppers urged to register electrical items in case of recall

Shoppers urged to register electrical items in case of recall

Electrical Safety First a UK charity is requesting that consumers register their products such as kitchen appliances, hair dryers and other high-powered electricals are registered so that manufacturers can contact them if a common fault or product recall happens.

89% of consumers say they would return a recalled item, yet only 20% are successfully returned, this basically means that many households are unaware that they have a potentially dangerous appliances in their properties, these could cause things like electric shocks to high risks of fires etc.

Fewer than half of people in the UK registered the last electrical item they bought.

£41.6 million a year is spent fixing damage caused by faulty appliances EVERY YEAR, while 46 people are killed each year by electrical fires.

Emma Apter, Electrical Safety First, said:

“We know electrical products are high on shopping lists this sale season so we’re urging the public to keep their families and homes safe by making a habit of registering a new product as soon as they get it home.

“People may think it’s too much hassle or there is no benefit of providing contact details but an unregistered appliance can be a hidden danger in homes as it’s difficult for manufacturers to trace them.”

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,500 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
