Home Electrical Safety

We have talked about High Voltage and the Effects of electric current in the human body  - we also offer Electrical Safety Training for the workplace (as well as electrical safety training materials) - but what about at home?

electrical-safetySome home electrical safety tips:

Never overload outlets, power strips, multi-plug adapters or extension cords.

Use light bulbs with the correct wattage for lighting fixtures. If you use a larger watt bulb in a fixture you increase the potential for a fire.

Do not use electrical appliances in or near showers or bathtubs. If they fall into the water, it will create a severe electric shock .

Turn off all electrical appliances that produce heat, such as curling irons, clothes irons, hot plates and stoves, every time you leave the room .
