    Ban the Bravado: NICEIC Campaign to Call in Registered Electricians

    Blog-NICEIC-Campaign

    The NICEIC and ELECSA have teamed up to launch a campaign that will encourage men to ditch the DIY when it comes to electricity and call in an expert.

The charity Electrical Safety First suggests that nearly half of all severe electrical shocks are caused by unsafe DIY.
