Electrical Safety Tips for Buyers and Sellers
in Somerset County, NJ
Electricity is an increasing presence in our modern lives. As our reliance on electricity grows, so does the potential for electrical safety hazards. The good news is that electrical safety awareness and education among consumers, families, employees and communities can prevent electrical fires, injuries, fatalities and property loss.
To increase public awareness of the electrical hazards around us, the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) sponsors National Electrical Safety Month each May. ESFI offers the following tips to help protect yourself, your family and your home by identifying and eliminating electrical hazards.
· Make sure entertainment centers and computer equipment have plenty of space around them for ventilation. Keep liquids, including drinks, away from electrical items such as televisions and computers.
· Use extension cords only as a temporary solution, and never as a permanent power supply. Do not place extension cords in high traffic areas, under carpets or across walkways, where they pose a potential tripping hazard.
· Use a surge protector to protect your computer and other electronic equipment from damage caused by voltage changes.
· Heavy reliance on power strips is an indication that you have too few outlets to address your needs. Have additional outlets installed by a qualified, licensed electrician.
