COMMON CAUSES OF ELECTRICAL ACCIDENTS
Many tragedies involving electricity can be prevented by following simple safety procedures. The most common causes of electrical accidents are:
- A lack of maintenance of electrical equipment
- The home handyperson performing electrical work instead of using a licensed electrical contractor
- Contact with overhead wires
Simply being aware of these dangers will help to reduce the risks, but there is much more you and your mum or dad can do. If you and your friends learn from a very early age about the dangers of electricity, you can help each other avoid any dangers.
It is very important you are aware that electrical appliances, cords, switches and power points are not to be played with.
