Springing into Electrical Safety

 
Spring Safety Tips
 
Warmer weather stimulates an increase in outdoor work in many parts of the country, a focus on electrical safety awareness can help ensure these activities do not result in injuries or deaths. Following a few simple safety rules this Spring 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; repairing or replacing any damaged items.
 
* Water and electricity do not mix. Avoid damp conditions — including wet grass — when using electricity.
 
* Use ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protection when working where water is near electricity to protect against electric shock.
