Why haven't we heard about RCDs until now?

Where have you been? with Noah on the Ark???

In a recent survey, a third of respondents said they knew what an RCD was – however, we know that many people confuse them with circuit-breakers, which offer nowhere near the same level of safety protection.

RCD protection has been around for many years, but there has been no requirement to fit it in older properties. With the increasing number of electrical devices we all have in the home and garden, we all need to consider electrical safety more. The Electrical Safety Council is running this campaign to cut the number of people killed or injured by electrical accidents by getting more of us to fit RCD protection at home.
