My four years old daughter and I moved in a newly built property two years ago. I have concerns about our kitchen area with electrical switches and sockets so close to the cooker top edges, and the sink basin. Our only electrical sockets are at the L corner of our kitchen. To have access to them and the appliances plugged into them we have to lean over our cooker top - risking burns from the hubs and oven - and sink drainer. I have concerns about my daughter and mine safety. See photos attach. Our landlord is ignoring my concerns. What can I do?
Whilst there is no direct regulation, an IEE publication called Electricians Guide to the Building Regulations, a distance of 300mm between the hob edge and socket outlet. Also, 300mm between the sink drainer and socket outlet. Hope this helps.
