Title: Preventing hot water scaldings in bathrooms: using TMVs

Ref Code: IP14/03

Abstract1: Hot bath water is responsible for the highest number of fatal and severe scald injuries in the home. Young and old are most at risk. There is no legal requirement to limit water delivery temperatures in homes, but several recent changes in regulations and recommended practice have been introduced. This Paper explains how to reduce the risk of scalding and contains technical guidance on the selection, installation and maintenance of products to provide hot water at temperatures to minimise severe scalding risks to users of baths and showers.
