Electrical Safety: Shock Prevention in the Kitchen

Electrical Safety: Shock Prevention in the Kitchen

Bill’s Quality Electric, LLC shares electrical safety and shock prevention tips with a special focus on the kitchen and how to avoid electrical hazards.

When it comes to making breakfast on a school morning, we can often find ourselves in a hurry when we’re pressed for time before the bus arrives or before leaving to get in line to drop the kiddos off.

But electrical safety in the kitchen is of paramount importance, especially when using electrical appliances such as the toaster or microwave.

Be sure the kids know not to remove toast using a metal piece of cutlery. If something gets stuck, unplug it first! Metal on electrical parts inside can create electrical shock.

When you use the microwave, be sure to only use items that can be contained without electrical issues.

Teaching your kids how to use appliances correctly, especially on those school mornings when they might be in a hurry, can help prevent accidents, and even death by electrical shock.

Plus it gives you the opportunity to connect before the school day begins.

Bill’s Quality Electric, LLC wish you an electrically safe day and encourages you to Stay Electrically Safe and Smart!

Electrical Safety: Cautions for Your Holiday

Electrical Safety: Cautions for Your Holiday

Bill’s Quality Electric, LLC shares electrical safety and shock prevention tips with a special focus on your holiday activities and how you can protect yourself and your loved ones from the hazards of electric shock drowning.

As we enjoy the environment with friends and family during the holiday, we often engage in relaxing activities such as being by the poolside, going swimming or boating as summer weather beckons us.

We would like to offer three cautions for your weekend engagements to help you prevent an accident, injury or even death due to electrical shock.

When you sit by the pool, be sure to keep your distance from the pool water if you have electrical appliances of any kind or if you are using your cell phone plugged in to charge. Water and electricity do not mix.

If your children or grandchildren are playing outside in the sprinkler, be sure not to allow any electrical items in the vicinity, thus turning the play area into an electrical hazard ripe for shock, which could lead to death.

If you are enjoying some boating time in a marina area, be sure not to go swimming in that area since there is always the possibility of electrical current being present, which could lead to electric shock drowning. Again, water and electricity do not mix.

Enjoy your holiday keeping these cautions in mind for you and your loved ones and Stay Electrically Safe and Smart!

Bill’s Quality Electric, LLC wishes all a Electrically Safe and Smart Holiday weekend!
