OR......a hinged lid,over the hob,with a micro-switch,interlocking a contactor,isolating supply to that socket....

I may be over thinking it,but i'm out in the rain shortly,wrestling the floppy,broken gear stick,off a small tractor,so this keeps me dry and cheerful ...

it's always raining in munchester. what;s new?
What's new? ...well...the worlds sicker,sadder and sillier...but,with a good sense of humour and some grit,it's all possible.

Never had a bigger variety of jobs...not all resulting in golden eggs,but,all gratefully remunerated.

I've just got engineering to deal with,me sisters have the soggy end of the stick...one's a copper,the other in NHS...harder things to repair,people (would insert a smiley,here,but Qanon has given them to Satan,as a gift)

I've had to move existing accessories before this close to a hob, before the gas fitter would install a new hob. Not sure what their rules are.
I was looking into this recently, and most sites seems to agree that for the Gas regulations, it's 150mm to each side of a gas hob (up to 400mm). Though when I tried to track the official source down I couldn't find it - I suspect it's in their BS book, which I'm certainly not buying to confirm.

It's unclear to me whether an all metal switch that was not 'flammable' would comply in that zone - but then most metal switches have some plastic in them anyway.
