Safety in the home
It’s easy to use electricity safely at home if you understand the risks and take care. Our tips can be a helpful start.
-Retire, replace or have repaired damaged electrical appliances (i.e. damaged/frayed cords; cracked housing; broken plugs).
-Ensure you have and RCD Safety Switch installed and test regularly.
-Turn off power points before plugging/unplugging appliances.
-Turn off all appliances such as air conditioners, heaters, ovens and stove tops when leaving your home.
-Maintain exhaust fans in a clean condition, free of lint.
-Ensure appliances have adequate breathing space to prevent overheating.
-Remove all combustible material situated near stoves, heaters and lamps.
-Licensed electricians should undertake all your electrical work and repairs.
-Be extremely careful when using appliances connected to power points near wet areas including sinks, baths and swimming pools.
-If an electrical appliance has been immersed in water it must be discarded immediately.
-Don’t use portable heaters in bathroom areas. Instead, you should have either a strip heater installed high on the wall or a ceiling unit installed by a registered electrical contractor.
-Never touch anything electrical with wet hands or bare feet.
-Switch off and unplug your toaster before trying to remove toast, muffins or crumpets that are caught in the body of the unit.

-Never leave cooking unattended. If you must leave the room momentarily take something with you as a reminder that you are cooking (eg. a wooden spoon)
-Extension cords with damaged plugs or cords should be discarded.
