Electrical Safety

7 things to do to practice electrical safety in your home

Here is a list, put together by the Electrical Safety Foundation International, that has are some simple, but often overlooked or ignored things to do to make your home as safe as possible when it comes to electrical safety.

    • Always use correct bulb wattage in lighting – Going over the recommended wattage is very high risk, with little to no reward.
    • Check lamp and extension cords for damage; avoid tightly wrapped cords – These can cause surges, which at the very least can cause your breaker to trip.
    • Keep furniture off of wiring – It is never a good idea to put the integrity of wires at risk, especially with items in your home that are flammable themselves.
    • Check wall outlets, and switches for proper functionality – This is another great way to avoid fires and unnecessary breaker tripping
    • Keep appliances away from water or combustibles and heat – Water and electricity are never a good combination.
    • Avoid overloading circuits – an overloaded circuit is a very dangerous situation that can result in a fire in your home.
    • Check appliances and electrical products for faulty operation – Appliances that are working improperly can have uneven power usage and can cause house fires in a number of ways.
