Electricity safety measures that you must take to keep your kids safe
We cannot predict the mind of kids between 1-6 years. They can do anything at any time. From Clothing Iron to the freezer in the kitchen, they can touch and inspect anything, because this is the age when their mind wants to know everything that comes in front of them. So… this is kids’ mind.
It is your responsibility to keep them safe from electrical shocks and other harmful things existing in your house. Making a house electricity shock-free is easy if you have some creative ideas in your mind.
For a little help, here are some innovative ideas you may use to keep safe your children at home:
Cover all unused switch & socket boards
Use your furniture creatively to cover up the unused electricity boards at your home. You can consider using safety outlets as they do not allow foreign objects into them. Inserting plastic cannot be a good option as they can easily be pulled off.
Keep small electric devices away from the reach of kids
Keep devices like set-top box away from the reach of kids as they can try to pull off the wires, which can result in getting an electric shock. Keep them at height or hidden from the sight of kids.
Keep the doors of Bathroom & Kitchen closed
Do not forget to keep all not-needed doors closed as your curious kid may try to enter and touch electric device like a washing machine and geyser connections.
Do not keep extension boards plugged, when not needed
If you are not using extension boards, it is strictly advised to unplug them and keep them out of the reach of your kids. If your kid is disturbing while you are using extension board, then try to keep them away or cover the unused sockets with tape.
