June 1, 2007, Newsletter Issue #66: Safety First: Water and Electricity

Tip of the Week

You know you should never touch an electrical appliance when you are bathing, and you need to let your kids know that, too. If your kids do have their own bath space, it is wise to keep it free of electrical appliances.

If your family shares bath space, then make sure that all electrical appliances, cords and fixtures in your bathroom listed by an independent testing laboratory such as Underwriters Laboratories (UL), and keep hair dryers, curling irons, electrical razors and other small electrical appliances away from water and unplugged and stored when not in use.

Whether your family shares bathrooms or not, make sure all bathrooms are protected by ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) and test your GFCI monthly to determine that it is operating properly.
