Whether you are preparing for a spookfest with friends or getting ready for the trick-or-treaters, let’s think about all the electrical horrors we come across day to day at work.

Sparks who squeeze themselves into small dark loft spaces with hidden spiders or have to work in creepy basements come across some sights. There’s also the real danger of working with faulty electrics, exposed wires and installations placed where they shouldn’t be.

With the scare season officially upon us, we take a look at some truly shocking electrical installations.

The above electrical horrors emphasise how important it is to always employ a qualified electrician to do the job properly!

Make sure your electrics are always safe. If you have any concerns about electrics in your home or workplace, you can ask an electrician to carry out an EICR (electrical installation condition report).

Happy Halloween everyone, we hope you enjoyed looking through the scary pictures!!!!
