Licensed Electrician Tips for Safety

Of course, electricians hear many stories that are easy to prevent, but the tragic stories of electrical accidents are easily preventable with little knowledge. Accidents can occur at any time, and volt prophylaxis requires watts of treatment.

Ropes: wires should not be slings or fixed in place; Moreover, they should not be under the carpet. If the wire is covered, this not only creates a risk of disconnection but also cannot be adequately cooled. Moreover, wear and tear will not go away, and this is an ideal recipe for a fire hazard. Tie the ropes along the edge of the room for a safe home.

Plugs: electrical contractors often see this. Do not modify components for any reason. Turning the screws or removing the third pin (also called the grounding pin) will result in electric shock. The plug should fit comfortably into the outlet, and no effort should be made. The consequences of ignoring this advice can be painful and deadly.

Water: this is fundamental science. Water has a high conductivity. Any electric current entering the pond will spread throughout the lake until the energy runs out … and if the hairdryer is plugged in and falls into the bathroom, there will be a lot of electricity for a long time. Never try to find a device that has fallen, even if it is turned off.

Lightning: every electrician knows that this is often forgotten. During a thunderstorm, turn off all appliances and stay away from water (including bathtubs and showers). If lightning strikes electrical wires outside your home, a power surge will occur around your home. Anyone in the bath or shower will be stunned by the water coming out of the electrified pipes, and any active devices will probably be eliminated, lasting only a few seconds, but the loss of life or property is permanent.

Heaters. Heaters are small devices placed in a room to generate heat. Due to their size and functionality, they are usually a temporary addition to the room, and some critical safety information is ignored. Never put anything flammable in the yard. Carpets, furniture, and curtains are the most common examples of things that light up when you carelessly put them next to the fireplace.

All electrical contractors generally agree that if everyone recognizes these simple tips, the loss of life and property can be significantly reduced.
