2017 National Electrical Safety Month at Eldeco
May is recognized by the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) as National Electrical Safety Month. Every year, the organization leads a campaign to educate people on the dangers of “electrically-related fires, fatalities, injuries and property loss.” This year, in tandem with the safety campaign, ESFI is launching a National Electrical Safety Month article. The article is titled, “Decoding the NEC to Prevent Shock and Electrocution,” published in Electrical Safety Illustrated. The publication can be accessed here.
Why Electrical Safety Matters at Work and at Home
All professionals in the electrical industry are required to understand the ever-changing NEC code and perform preventative measures to maintain a safe work environment. The next step is to spread that safety awareness beyond the workplace. Every day, children, families and professionals come into contact with electricity. But how many people know the dangers of fires, electrical drownings or unprotected surges?
Electrical Dangers to Beware:
- Non-childproofed electrical outlets
- Unprotected internal surges
- Electrical shock drowning
- Homes and other buildings that were built prior to the latest series of NEC code revisions
