Electrical accidents can cause damage and injuries. Here are some ways to prevent them…
Don’t force a plug into an outlet or use a broken plug.
Hold the plug securely when unplugging an appliance.
Cover outlets to prevent injuries to young children.
If a cord is damaged, have the appliance repaired or replaced.
Don’t hide electrical cords under rugs or carpets.
Don’t nail or staple cords to floors or walls.
Keep extension cords out of the way.
Have an electrician install additional outlets if necessary.
Use bulbs that are appropriate for each light and screw them in tightly.
Finally, if fuses blow or circuits trip frequently, call an electrician.
