Some safety tips to remember:
Only use the correct type and size fuse for a circuit.
If you find an overloaded circuit, repair it before continuing to use it.
Never use extension cords for anything other than their intended purpose. Extension cords are never to be used in place of permanent wiring.
Outlets within 6 feet of water should be GFCI protected.
Never climb any trees that are near power lines.
Make sure ladders, kites, and anything stay away from overhead power lines.
Routinely check your electrical appliances and wiring.
Hire an InterNACHI inspector. InterNACHI inspectors must pass rigorous safety training and are knowledgeable in the ways to reduce the likelihood of electrocution.
Frayed wires can cause fires. Replace all worn, old and damaged appliance cords immediately.
Use electrical extension cords wisely and don't overload them.
Keep electrical appliances away from wet floors and counters; pay special care to electrical appliances in the bathroom and kitchen.
Don't allow children to play with or around electrical appliances, such as space heaters, irons and hair dryers.
Keep clothes, curtains and other potentially combustible items at least 3 feet from all heaters.
If an appliance has a three-prong plug, use it only in a three-slot outlet. Never force it to fit into a two-slot outlet or extension cord. Never cut the third prong off to make it fit a two slot outlet.
Never overload extension cords or wall sockets. Immediately shut off, then professionally replace, light switches that are hot to the touch, as well as lights that flicker. Use safety closures to childproof electrical outlets.
Check your electrical tools regularly for signs of wear. If the cords are frayed or cracked, replace them. Replace any tool if it causes even small electrical shocks, overheats, shorts out or gives off smoke or sparks.
Do not place towels or any other flammable object over bathroom door or near heat lamp when a heat lamp is present in bathroom ceiling.
