Electricity is no joke: while it serves a ton of purposes in your daily life, it needs to be handled with care to avoid any dangerous situations. With this in mind, this post will go over a few common electrical safety measures you should follow to keep yourself from harm when dealing with electricity.

Electrical Safety Measures

  1. As you know frayed wires can be bad news. If you encounter one at home, either replace the entire appliance or take it to a professional so they can repair it properly.
  2. As with everything else, your electric system can start deteriorating with time and use. This is why you should have an electrician who can give it the maintenance it needs to work.
  3. A common electrical safety measure is to avoid plugging too many devices into one outlet or extension cord. If you do this, you’re overloading the outlet, which may cause a fire to start.
  4. Don’t just let your cords laying around your home! This can lead to trips, falls, and may even damage the wires. Instead, store them nicely so you don’t risk them getting tangled and messed up.
  5. Speaking of treating your cords nicely, whenever you need to unplug a device from a socket, don’t just tug it off. This can damage your appliance, the cord, the plug, or the outlet, so be careful.
  6. Sometimes, you may notice that when trying to connect a device to an outlet, the plug doesn’t fit the socket correctly. Be sure not to force the plug in because that could result in you getting shocked.
  7. This is a big one! Never ever stick a piece of metal (like scissors or a knife) into an electrical socket or toaster. You will 100% get electrocuted, which is very dangerous and unnecessary.
  8. Another important thing to keep in mind is that water and electricity shouldn’t mix. Don’t grab a plugged device while you or it are wet, don’t throw water to put out an electrical fire, and try your best to keep these two as far away from each other.
  9. A simple thing you can do but that can be very effective in keeping you safe is just to take notice. Note whenever a light flickers, if you sense a burnt rubber smell, or anything unusual.
  10. Finally, if you do notice that something isn’t working as it should, be sure to call a professional as soon as possible so they can deal with the situation safely and appropriately.
