Inside Your Home

Here are a few points to keep in mind while you are inside your home.

  • Never put your finger or anything other than an electrical plug in an outlet.
  • Have any loose-fitting plugs fixed by an electrician.
  • Don't force a plug into an outlet if it won't fit.
  • Replace broken plates on outlets and switches so that no wiring is exposed.
  • Use safety covers on all outlets accessible to children.
  • Make sure the amperage rating for an extension cord is greater than, or equal to, the tool you will be using.
  • Inspect all cords and wiring on a regular basis for broken or frayed insulation.
  • Immediately repair or replace unsafe cords.
  • Do NOT cut off ground prongs as this will eliminate the protection grounded cords provide.
  • Only use extension cords on a temporary basis, not as a substitute for permanent wiring.
  • Limit the number of appliances plugged into each outlet.
  • Do not place electric cords so they run through doorways, windows, or under carpets.
  • Always allow the cord to have some slack.
  • A cord pulled too tightly can put tension on plugs and receptacles and increase the potential for connections to pull loose.
  • Pay attention to avoid any situation which might cut the insulation on a cord, exposing bare wiring or causing it to overheat.
  • Pull by the plug not the cord when unplugging an appliance. Don't staple or nail cords or wiring to walls or floors.
