Stay Safe When Using Your Electricity With Our Safety Tips
Protect Children With These Safety Tips
Electricity has made our lives much more convenient and allowed us to power our favorite devices and equipment. However, it's important to recognize the danger of using electricity improperly. Follow the safety tips listed by Gerard Electric Inc.
Remember to keep your children safe by using plastic safety covers on exposed electrical outlets. Also, avoid overloading outlets or running extension cords across doorways or under carpets.
Take Caution With Electricity
Make sure to replace or repair loose and frayed cords. Follow manufacturer's instructions for plugging into outlets.
If outlets or switches feel warm, shut off the circuit until they can be checked by our team. Avoid the use of "cube taps" and similar devices. Always use light bulbs that match recommended wattage.
Follow These Helpful Tips for Safe Electricity Usage
Don't use electrical appliances near water, and don't touch electrical devices with wet hands.
Don't prune trees yourself near power lines or try to remove toys and other items caught in power lines. Turn off electrical items during a storm to avoid power surges.
