Gas and electrical safety affects everyone. If you’re a homeowner who is renovating or performing maintenance on your home, it’s important to take safety precautions. Even if you hire contractors, it’s important to be aware of safety risks.

Picture this scene – a landscaper begins digging and hits a gas pipe just two meters from your home. The gas ignites and fire starts to spread.
