Working Safe At Home

2020 has brought a lot of changes to our everyday life. One important change is the amount of time we spend at home. With more time spent at home, we require more dependence on our home’s electrical output. If your household is learning or working from home these days follow these electrical safety tips to keep you and your home safe from electrical hazards.

Avoid overloading outlets

Unplug appliances when not in use to save energy and minimize the risk of shock or fire

Regularly inspect electrical cords and extension cords for damage

Extension cords should only be used on a temporary basis

Never plug a space heater or fan into an extension cord or power strip

Never run cords under rugs / carpets, doors, or windows

Plug in smartly. Make sure cords do not become tripping hazards

Keep papers and other potential combustibles at least three feet away from space heaters and other heat sources

Make sure you use proper wattage for lamps / lighting
