Hot Water Safety
How to prevent scalding by hot water
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) fought a long and successful campaign to prevent horrific bath water scalds in homes across the UK.
The result was an amendment to the Building Regulations which came into effect on 6th April 2010. All new-build homes across England and Wales after that date must have devices fitted to baths to limit the temperature of the water to 48°C. That temperature is still more than hot enough for domestic use, but it removes the potential for the most serious scald injuries to happen.
