A Shock to the System: Electrical Safety in an Ageing Society

3rd February 2015, International Longevity Centre UK (ILC-UK)

This report from International Longevity Centre UK reveals that the current housing stock is putting vulnerable people at risk, and is not fit to allow people to age safely in their own homes, with those living in low-income households or in rural areas most affected. The report reveals serious concerns about the electrical safety of older people. More than 350,000 people are seriously injured by electricity every year and older adults are more likely to be affected - a person over 60 is ten times more likely to die in a fire than someone one aged 17 to 24.
