An important development in home safety, RCDs (Residual Current Devices) are simple fittings designed to help prevent electric shock and other accidents due to faulty electrical appliances or wiring.
How do they work?
An RCD can detect changes in the proper flow of electric current (when a flex or cable is cut, for instance, or an electrical tool malfunctions). Within milliseconds of this happening, the RCD automatically disconnects the power supply to the equipment before you can be electrocuted or further damage can be done.
Where are they needed?
RCD protection is advisable with any portable mains appliance being used in a garden, or garage, or kitchen. This means electrical garden equipment like hedge cutters, lawnmowers, trimmers, chainsaws etc., and tools like drills, sanders, etc., where it is all too easy to slice through a cable accidentally.
The moisture in places such as kitchens is an additional hazard, greatly increasing the risk of electrocution.
