10 Steps to Stay Safe Around Electricity

There are a range of steps people should take to stay safe from electrical risks around the home.

  1. Always have a safety switch installed by a qualified electrician.
  2. Check electric blankets for damaged wiring and plugs. Damaged blankets should be replaced immediately. Blankets should also be spread flat and tied securely on the bed so they can’t crease.
  3. Never leave appliances such as heaters or ovens running unattended.
  4. Do not place heat generating appliances such as TVs in confined spaces. They need sufficient air flow to stay cool.
  5. Keep inflammable material such as clothes away from cookers and lamps.
  6. Regularly remove lint from dryers and allow the load to complete its cycle so it has time to cool.
  7. Remove crumbs from the toaster regularly.
  8. Regularly clean ovens and their range hood filters.
  9. Install a ventilation system in the kitchen to clear away fumes.
  10. Ensure that outdoor appliances meet industry safety standards.
