Power Socket Safety Tips

Graham Marshall - Thursday, November 15, 2012

Today's focus as part of our electrical safety campaign is on the safe use of  power sockets.  Read below for the key tips on this topic:

●  Block unused outlets with a solid cover plate or childproof caps. Few electrical safety tips are more important when you have young children in the house;

●  Ensure that all wall-mounted power sockets ("outlets") are encased with solid, secure plates so that all the wiring is enclosed;
●  Do not overloading power sockets or outlets with large numbers of extension cables and temporary power box's;;
●  Never place anything into the power socket holes except for the appropriately-sized plug; and
●  Always install a residual current device (RCD) or ground fault circuit interrupter in your home and office.
