Transcript of ELECTRICAL SAFETY

ELECTRICAL SAFETY Of all energy sources, electricity has the greatest potential to cause serious injuries. Electricity is an integral part of today's modern world, and sometimes it is easy to forget just how dangerous it can be. Given the correct circumstances, it can kill. But it can also shock you painfully, damage sensitive equipment, and ignite combustible materials. With all the household electrical appliances used every day, it is important to know how to use them safely. Here are some ways to ensure electrical safety: OUTLETS Check outlets that have loose-fitting plugs which can overheat and lead to fire. Replace any missing or broken wall plates. Place safety covers on all unused outlets that are accessible to children CORDS Make sure cords are in good condition, not frayed or cracked. Do not nail or staple cords to the wall, baseboard, or any other object. Do not place cords under carpets or rugs or rest any furniture on them. EXTENSION
CORDS Avoid "octopus connections." Use extension cords with safety closures to prevent young children from shock hazards and mouth burn injuries. PLUGS Make sure your plugs fit your outlets. Never remove the ground pin (the third prong) to make a three-pronged plug fit into a two-conductor outlet. Unplug appliances that are not in use. LIGHT BULBS Use bulbs with correct wattage for the size of the fixture. Make sure bulbs are screwed in securely; loose bulbs may overheat. CIRCUIT BREAKERS OR FUSES Circuit breaks and fuses should have the correct size and current rating for the circuit. Always replace a fuse with the same size of fuse. APPLIANCES Never leave plugged-in appliances where they might fall into water. Never reach into the water to pull out fallen appliances, even if it is turned off. Turn off the power source and then unplug the appliance. Do not use an appliance that has gotten wet. Source:
