Chief Fire Officer Mark James said:
"In 2014, a quarter of all fires in the home were started by electrical equipment. The safest way to use electrical devices is not leave them on or charging for long periods of time. Turn off electrical equipment when it is not in use, when you leave your home and when you go to bed.”

Turn if off energy check
To reduce the amount of energy being wasted it would be useful to carry out an energy check. You simply need to walk around your place of work at the end of the day and see what's been left on and what's been turned off. Changing people's behaviour is about positive reinforcement, praising people who do the right thing. You could even leave a little note or a small token gift for people who've turned off.
Carry out checks as often as you like. It's always worth doing this if your place or work is going to be closed for a little while. Keep a chart so you can record improvements. People love to be told they're doing a good job.
