How to improve electrical safety at home

  • Make visual checks to your electrics with professional help.
  • Take great care with your DIY. DIY attempts result in nearly half of all severe electric shocks in the home. Remain vigilant in the kitchen. Misuse of kitchen appliances is just one of the many electrical safety no-nos in the home.
  • Remember that water and electricity are a deadly mix. The bathroom can be one of the most dangerous rooms in the house when it comes to electrical safety.
  • Don’t use electrical gardening equipment outdoors until it is dry.
  • Take the necessary precautions after a flood. If your home has been flooded, there is a high chance the electrics could be damaged.
