These unfused leads should not be supplied for the domestic market
unfused leads are used in industry but they are usally commando sockets
Three pin leads can be used in an industrial or office enviorement on circits that are protected by the correct fuse rating at the board these are usally round pin (3 5 15 amp ) or square pin with offset pins so that standard plugs will not fit into the sockets

I also would tend to cut off the dangerous plug and throw it away. It is fairly easy to strip the insulation off the wire and jam it in the socket with a couple of matchsticks.
