May is National Electrical Safety Month

In honor of National Electrical Safety Month, here are a few links to information about electrical safety:

Electrical Safety Tips for Adults – This link leads you to a bulleted list provided by OSHA.  One point is: “Never repair electrical cords or equipment unless qualified and authorized.”  In other words, you should always call a licensed electrician when you are dealing with electricity, for making a mistake with electricity can lead to injury or death.  Save the do-it-yourself projects for other types of home repair.

Electrical Safety for Your Workforce – This blog post contains a handy infographic that summarizes the ways you can protect your and your workers from electrical hazards.
