Electrical Safety

1 min. readlast update: 10.17.2023

Electrical safety and fire prevention is a priority for ISH. Please do not trail electrical extension leads around your room, as this could be a trip hazard. Do not overload sockets with multiple adaptors as this is a fire risk. Electrical equipment should be switched off and unplugged when you leave your room.  

Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) is carried out regularly by our Maintenance team to test the safety of electrical items in rooms. If you are considering buying any new appliances during your stay, please inform the Duty Manager prior to purchase so that we can confirm if these appliances are appropriate for the space or if they will be required to be checked for electrical safety before use.
