May is National Electrical Safety Month, and it’s a great time to consider how to avoid potential electrical hazards.
Every day, we rely on electricity to power our homes and offices. However, it is important to always be safe around electric appliances, equipment and power lines. Electricity is an essential and dependable resource but
we must all be aware of the serious and sometimes deadly consequences of using electricity unsafely.
By taking simple precautions, everyone can avoid electrically related fires, fatalities, injuries and property loss.
- Don’t overload electrical outlets.
- Check electric cords for fraying or cracking. Replace cords that may be damaged.
- Remember extension cords are intended to be temporary; they are not intended as permanent household wiring.
- Don’t run cords under carpets or rugs and don’t tack or nail cords to walls or floors.
- Keep electric appliances and tools away from water. Never reach for or unplug an appliance that has fallen into water; instead, turn the power off at the breaker before you unplug the appliance or remove it from the water.
- Never put anything other than an electrical plug in an outlet. Use outlet covers or caps to protect children.
- Keep your home and office electrical system in good repair. Contact a licensed electrical contractor if you experience any problems.
