The Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) is encouraging employers to promote electrical safety during National Electrical Safety Month this May by increasing employee awareness of the electrical hazards that may exist in an office setting.
The modern office environment has changed dramatically in recent years as a result of new office technologies and an increased reliance on electrical equipment. Improper use of this workplace equipment can cause serious electrical shock and burn injuries.
“Electrical accidents that occur in an office environment are usually a result of faulty or defective equipment, unsafe installation, or misuse of equipment—specifically, extension cords, power strips and surge protectors,” said Brett Brenner, president of the ESFI.
National Electrical Safety Month is a great time to review workplace electrical safety practices. Effective electrical safety programs increase safety awareness, provide established safety guidelines, and ensure the proper tools and technology are used to mitigate the risks associated with electrical safety hazards.
Awareness of electrical hazards is critical to preventing accidents and creating a safer work environment. Following basic safety principles can help to ensure your safety and the safety of those around you:
