DIY Electrical Safety

The weather is gorgeous making now the perfect time to tackle do-it-yourself projects in and outside your home. No matter the size of the job or the skill level of the doer, it is essential to keep electrical safety at the forefront of any project. Here are some safety tips to keep in mind:

–Carefully inspect all tools and appliances for damaged cords, plugs or other safety hazards. If damaged, fix or replace the item.
–Always keep ladders at least 10+ feet away from power lines. Even a wooden ladder can prove fatal if it comes in contact with a power line.
–Unplug all tools when not in use.
–Remember that water and electricity do not mix! Use caution when working with electricity in conditions such as wet grass.

A simple project can result in injuries, or worse yet death, if electrical safety is not practiced at all times. For more tips on staying safe around electricity, visit lcec.net.
