Appliance Safety Testing - Photos

Here are some pictures of faulty or sub-standard appliances and leads that have been found in the Physics Department.  Some had problems from new, others have been installed with parts missing, some have been badly constructed or modified in the department.  Maybe they will help you recognise something is wrong with your appliance in which case you should stop using it and contact an Appliance Tester or Electrical Supervisor.  Click the links below for details:
