Lighting Safety is a Bright Idea ...

  • Safety
  • Seasonal
During the holiday season, most Canadians put up Christmas lights and this year, the Canada Safety Council is partnering with Danatec, who remind you an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, so take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with these electrical safety tips:
 

 Don’t use damaged extension cords: If your extension cord is damaged at the plug or the sheathing, do not use the cord. The damage may cause you to get an electric shock. Repairing the cord with electrical tape is not recommended and will not ensure that it is safe to use the cord in the long run.

 

 Use timers on outdoor lights: Using timers for your outdoor holiday lights is not only a great way to ensure that they are on before you’re home, but is also a great way to be environmentally conscious and save money on your power bill.

 

• Don’t plug in more than one space heater: Outlets can only handle one portable space heater. As soon as you plug in that second one, you’ll trip the breaker.

 

• Plug in your outdoor lights to ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlets: Most modern homes have GFCI outlets on the exterior of your home to plug in electrical equipment. The GFCI outlet trips when there is an electrical current on an unintended path – through water, for instance.

 

• Hit that test and reset button before you plug in your device: You want the GFCI to work to protect you from being electrocuted should there ever be an electrical fault. Consider doing this in the bathrooms in your house and on outside outlets at least once a month. It’s better to ensure the protection is working long before you need it.
