Plug socket covers


 Share

Recommended Posts

This is a topic that has been discussed several times previously on the FSF, on 30th June NHS told all health and social care providers to remove them from their settings - I have had a look at the online advice and found the following document. There is not a definitive ruling for the early years sector - but I'm removing all of ours!

 

The Myth of “Safety Socket Covers” - unnecessary and a hazard!

 

This was the alert sent out by NHS

I removed ours years ago.. staff were not happy until I explained why and at the time Ofsted told us we should have them.. I still did not have them in the setting, and had a similar explanation as in the article on site for anyone who questioned it..

We still use them! I've brought it up a couple of times but the response has been so emphatically no that I've left it, but, I've got the hall keys this year, so...☺

 

 

Plus, someone on fb just told me a retired electrician told her to remove just 2 weeks ago!!!
