It is an open-fact that electricity has many potential hazards to us (as it can cause burns, shocks and electrocution if used wrongly). As part of our effort to ensure health and safety practices in our community we are kindly requesting our customers and other community members to be extra careful and conscious of safety aspects regarding electrical equipments, installations and network within and outside their premises. Below are some tips for your safety :
Self-Care / First Aid
Electrical fires and accidents are most often attributed to problems with electric cords and plugs, lamps and light fixtures, and switches and outlets. Help protect yourself and your family from electricity-related injuries.
You don’t have to contact a powerline directly for it to seriously injure or kill you. Electricity can jump or “arc” through the air to an object you’re touching or holding and cause a severe shock. Follow these safety tips, stay well away from powerlines and respect the power.
