May is National Electrical Safety Month

May 23, 2023 – We are nearing the end of National Electrical Safety Month. Each May, LCEC joins the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) to help raise awareness about potential home electrical hazards and the importance of electrical safety.

Statistics show that electricity is a significant cause of injury and death among workers in the United States with more than 400 electrocutions and over 4,000 non-fatal injuries each year. Awareness and education are critical to reduce the incidence of electrical fires. ESFI sponsors National Electrical Safety Month annually in May to educate the public in order to reduce the number of electrically related fires, fatalities, injuries and property loss.
