Electrical Safety Tips
Repair Or Replace Damaged Power Cords
Do not duct tape them or hide them away under your rug. You are only creating a ticking time bomb — and a dangerous one at that. If you notice a frayed wire, replace it immediately.
Watch Out For Outlet Overload
This is an equally dangerous safety hazard you should look out for. According to the ESFI, you can follow these electrical outlet safety tips:
- Do not use extension cords or multi-outlet converters for appliances.
- Only plug one heat-producing appliance into an outlet at a time.
- Hot outlets should be checked by qualified electricians.
- Remember that power strips only add outlets—they do not change the amount of power the outlet receives.
- Smart plugs can be used to monitor outlet power loads and even shut off appliances should an outlet begin to overheat.

Tripping Circuit Breakers
In the past, fuse boxes were used in electrical connections. Basically, fuse boxes help to efficiently and safely distribute electricity through a home’s system. Circuit breakers perform a similar task by distributing electrical currents across many circuits. Each of those circuits has a breaker, and when the current overloads the breaker, it trips, stopping the flow of electricity through that circuit. Unlike fuses, overloading only causes a temporarily broken connection for circuit breakers. (Fuses become physically damaged and need to be replaced in order for power to be restored.)
