But its got this plug on it, is it ok to remove and put UK style plug on, or is it safer to put adaptor on ?

No idea what type it is, there only two wires to the cable.

That's a plug of the style used in South Africa, Namibia etc and is the equivalent of our plugs so it will be fine to put a UK plug on. The one you show is 5A so that's what I would match it with.

It's a low rated plug for special applications, it doesn't have a fuse.

It's ok to replace it with a normal one but use a 5A fuse.

IIRC those sort of plugs / sockets are also used in camper vans, boats and some hotels as stated for low (5Amp) appliences. The hotels use them to reduce the ammount of power guest use; phone chargers, laptops etc.

Only having two wires only means that it doesn't have a metal casing that requires an earth.

Swap plug for a 13 Amp UK model but use a 5 Amp fuse.
