safety Tips

Check The Power Cords

Make sure all wires, cords and plugs on your appliances are not frayed and that the plugs have 3-prong grounded connections. This would include coffee makers, toasters, blenders, microwaves, mixers, etc. Unplug all the electrical appliances and devices after use to ensure that they are not switched ON accidentally. Even unplug the appliances that have the auto-shut feature.

Avoid extension cords in the kitchen

Do not plug all your heavy household electrical appliances in one power outlet or socket. This can lead to the over loading of the outlet, leading to burning of wires i.e. do not use multi pin socket and plug air conditioner, Geyser, Computer in only one socket!

Check Your Home Earthing

All large electrical appliances like AC, refrigerator, washing machine etc. should be plugged-in using three pin plug where the third pin has to be earthed properly.

Store your meat at the bottom shelf

Store raw meat, poultry and seafood on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator in pans so juices don’t drip onto other foods.

Store vegetable in sealed lids

Store your vegetables in containers with tightly sealed lids.Better yet, wash them thoroughly and prep them for the week before they go into the fridge and you’ll find most of your prep work done when dinnertime rolls around on a busy week night.

Don’t Cover Your Hot Appliances

Never cover your any electrical appliances that heat up on using like iron or heater. Always keep them at well ventilated place to cool them down.

Switch OFF When Spark

Immediately switch off the power supply to the appliance in case of sparking or shock. Call professional for your home electrical repair. Reuse them, once they are repaired!

Take extra care when using sharp blades

Be sure appliances are unplugged before touching sharp edges (blenders, can openers, mixers, etc.)

Keep Your Household Electricals Out of Waterlogged Area

Never keep your electrical devices near any water source. Make sure your water decor items are far from your electrical appliances. Always be careful while using a washing machine, small portable fountain etc. which uses both water and electricity in your home.

Disconnect the power source while accessing panels.

Please be sure to disconnect all electrical power to the unit before you remove any of the access panels or attempt to perform any maintenance procedures. Always remember that there may be more than one power connection switch. If you are unsure about this do not attempt to perform any procedure. Instead get a professional to assist you. Be very careful when you handle parts or reach into units. Many of the metal parts and housings have very sharp edges which can cause severe injury

Electrical Safety For Kids

Ensure that your children/kids are well aware of these electrical safety tips and measures! If your kids are too small to understand, make sure that you keep them away from electronic devices and power outlets, plug etc. To ensure the electrical safety for kids, do not let them play with the wires and sockets even telephone or computer wires! Also, do not let them play in the proximity to small or large electric appliances.

Even though the “electricity is an everyday use”, there is still quite a bit of danger associated with improper use. Therefore, carefully observe all the safety measures when using electricity to keep yourself and your family safe! One of the best ways to reduce risk of death from electric shock in your home is to install a safety switch, also called as a Residual Current Device (RCD). However, never try to do any electrical work on your own!
