Electricity is an essential part of our lives. However, it can harm you if you don’t use it the right way or if it’s abused! We’re here to share with you electricity safety tips that could save your life!
It’s not just about convenience; it’s about safety. Overloading extension cords or ‘octopus wiring’ can lead to overheating, fires, and electrical hazards. Remember, the extension cord has its limits, too! It’s best to manage the use of the extension cords by limiting the number of appliances and devices using the slots.
In the midst of a crisis, knowing how to shut off your circuit breakers can be a life-saver. During severe storms, unexpected flooding, or other natural calamities, switching off your circuit breakers can reduce the risk of electrical surges or fires. Take a moment to familiarize yourself with your circuit breaker panel and its switches. When the unexpected strikes, you’ll be ready to act swiftly and safely.
Lastly, before handling electrical plugs, ensure your hands are dry. The water’s conductivity could turn your wet hands into an unwelcome electrical bridge, giving you a shock in the process!
