National Electrical Safety


During National Electrical Safety Month in May, Dave at Ask-The-Electrician is encouraging electricians and homeowners to eliminate electrical safety hazards in and around their home and jobsite. Electrical hazards can result in property damage, potential injuries and even deadly electrocutions.

Here are a few home electrical safety tips:

electrical-safety Use all appliances and equipment according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
electrical-safety Inspect and Replace damaged electrical equipment or have it repaired by a qualified electrician or a repair center.
electrical-safety Never overload power strips and surge suppressors.
electrical-safety Only use extension cords that are the right wire gauge and insulation type. If an appliance does not allow the use of an extension cord then do not use one.
electrical-safety Use ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protection on all electrical outlets located near water sources such as bathrooms, kitchens, fountains and swimming pools.
electrical-safety Only purchase electrical appliances and equipment tested and approved by an independent testing laboratory such as Underwriters Laboratories (UL).
electrical-safety Keep your body, arms, long handled tools, saws, ladders, pool tools, lumber and anything that reaches above your head at least 10 feet away from overhead power lines.
electrical-safety Call 811 before you dig. If you’re planting bushes or trees or just digging a hole for a fence post, call 811 at least two days ahead of time. It’s a free service that notifies utilities to come to your home and mark the location of their underground facilities like electric, gas, cable TV and water lines.
