Electric Shock Can Kill—Get These Tips to Keep Your Family Safe

Did you know that electric shock can kill? In fact, it’s one of the leading causes of accidental death in the world. Keep your family safe by following these tips to avoid electric shock in the home.

Keep cords organized and away from children

When it comes to keeping your family safe from electric shock, keeping cords organized is key. This way, cords will be less likely to be pulled out and tripped over. Additionally, keep cords out of reach of children to avoid any accidents.

Use caution when using extension cords

If you can, avoid using extension cords altogether. They’re often not as safe as using standard cords. Extension cords have more moving parts and can be more dangerous if they’re damaged or if they’re used in a way that’s not safe.

When you do need to use an extension cord, be sure to follow these safety tips:

• Keep cords organized. If your cords are tangled, they’re more likely to become damaged.

• Use a cord protector. Cord protectors help keep cords from becoming tangled and also stop them from being plugged into electrical outlet too many times.

• Use a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlet. A GFCI outlet protects you from electric shock if there is a problem with the power going to your home.

• Use an extension cord with a surge protector. A surge protector helps guard your device from unexpected power surges that can damage it.

Use a grounded outlet when possible

A grounded outlet is important when using electrical appliances. It will protect your family from electric shock. A grounded outlet can help reduce the risk of electrical shock. To use a grounded outlet, plug the appliance into the outlet, then plug the power cord into the wall.

To keep your family safe from electric shock, keep cords organized and away from children, use caution when using extension cords, and use a grounded outlet when possible.
