Christmas elf and safety myths you won’t believe

Christmas is on the snowy horizon. So during this festive month, let us be your Buddy (yes, that is an Elf reference), and debunk a number of health and safety Christmas myths that just leave us laughing like a bowl full of Santa’s jelly.

Safety myth

Indoor Christmas lights need a portable appliance test (PAT) every year

Safety reality

This health and safety myth unfortunately drives many companies to waste money under the pretence that they need to test their Christmas lights annually.

Perhaps even worse, some become the Christmas Grinch and don’t put them up at all!

The safety solution is simple: follow a few sensible precautions, such as checks by the user for obvious signs of damage, then your workplace can switch on safely and sparkle!
