All domestic and industrial wiring must conform to the 17th Edition Of The IEE Wiring Regulations which was published in January 2008.
In England and Wales, the Building Regulations (Approved Document Part P) require that domestic electrical installations are designed and installed safely according to the "fundamental principles" given in British Standard BS 7671 Chapter 13. These are very similar to the fundamental principles defined in international standard IEC 60364-1 and equivalent national standards in other countries. Accepted ways for fulfilling this legal requirement include
Installations in commercial and industrial premises must satisfy various safety legislation, such as the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989. Again, recognised standards and practices, such as BS 7671 "Wiring Regulations", are used to help meet the legislative requirements.

The electric chair was invented by a dentist.
In 1957 a battery was discovered in Bagdad. It was made by the Parthians, who ruled Bagdad from 250 B.C.E. to 224 C.E., and was used to electroplate silver.
One lightning bolt has enough electricity to service 200 000 homes.
Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931) was one of the most well known inventors of all time with 1093 patents.
Electrocution is one of the top five causes of workplace deaths.
During the late 1800s and early 1900s, entrepreneur Harvey Hubbell II worked to find ways of controlling electricity and developed the first two-blade electrical plug and socket.
The system of three-phase alternating current electrical generation, transmission, and distribution was developed in the 19th century by Nikola Tesla, George Westinghouse and others.
The standard nominal supply voltage in domestic single-phase 50 Hz installations in the UK has been 230V AC (rms) since 1 January 1995. Previously it was 240V.
The continued deviation in the UK
from the harmonised European voltage has been criticised in
particular by light bulb manufacturers, who require tighter
voltage tolerances to optimise the operating temperature and
lifetime of their products, and who currently have to
continue producing separate 230 V and 240 V versions.
