Spring Safety Tips (4/27/2016)

Warmer weather stimulates an increase in outdoor work in many parts of the country, both on the job and at home. A focus on electrical safety awareness can help ensure these activities do not result in injuries and deaths. 

Following a few simple safety rules can help reduce the number of electrical deaths and injuries:

  • Ladders—even those made of wood—that come into contact with a power line can prove fatal. Keep all ladders at least 10 feet away from overhead power lines.
  • Unplug outdoor tools and appliances when not in use.
  • Inspect power tools and appliances for frayed cords, broken plugs and cracked or broken housing. Repair or replace damaged items.
  • Water and electricity do not mix. Avoid damp conditions — including wet grass — when using electricity.
