In modern homes, electrical products are so common. You can find them in every room of your home. Phone chargers, power outlets, extension leads, electrical cables, and so on. As an adult, we all know the electrical dangers. But your kids know nothing about the safety hazards. And not all of these electrical products are designed with considering kids’ safety. Several times, I saw my daughter tried to insert some small things into plug sockets. I know it is extremely dangerous. Every year, there are many kids are dead in electrical accidents. How to find the unsafe electrical hazards or electrical dangers in room Maybe you have walked around the room and try to find all the unsafe sources. But that is not enough. Keep in mind, your child is short. So you should try to do that from your child’s perspective. Get down on your hands and knees. That will allow you to find electrical products which are within easy reach of your kid. How to keep away from electrical dangers Cords Many electrical products have a cord, and some extension cords are used to increase the range of electrical outlets. Here are some safety tips: Check cords regularly cracks, kinks, or frays. And try to keep cords in good condition; Don’t use cords as clothes lines, leashes, jump ropes and anything else other than the intended purpose; Never use cords beneath rugs; covering a cord will prevent it from keeping cool as possible; When unplugging a cord, don’t tug on the cord itself; pull on the cord at the outlet; Keep cords out of the reach of your kids, especially cords on hot items such as hair dryers, irons, and kettles. Electrical outlet Try to keep all electrical outlet out of the reach of your child; If you have outlets at the low position, you can use safety covers; If you have electrical outlets in bath room, you must cover it with plastic caps; Don’t overload outlets with multiple adaptors or power strips; Don’t put water near any electrical outlet; your kids maybe pour the water onto outlets Never leave unused electrical items Any plugged in electrical item is a danger to your kid. Many people leave a phone charger plugged in, but they don’t realize that is dangerous to kids. If your kids put the end of phone charge cord in their mouth, that can lead to electrical injury. Pay attention to large electrical appliances Dishwashers, tumble dryers, washing machines and some other large machines present frightening temptations for kids that could climb inside. And that is very dangerous. When you don’t use these appliances, unplug it and cover the outlet with a safety cap. Keep the door closed and try to prevent doors being opened by young children. You can try to choose appliances with child lock function. And you can try to use baby cabinet locks or straps too. Keep water away from any electrical consoles Water spilt over computers, sky boxes, DVD player, game consoles and other electrical items will destroy them. And not only that, your kid may receive an electric shock. After bathing or washing hands, some children run to the TV or other electrical items quickly to switch them. It is dangerous. That could lead to electrical shock or injury. So it is important to always keep your kids dry before they have access to any electrical items. What to do if electrical accidents happen If an electrical accident happens, the first thing you must do is to disconnect the power supply. Don’t touch them until you are sure the power supply is turned off!! If it is in wet areas, such as a bathroom, you must be more careful. So everyone in the family must know how to turn off the power at the control panel. And you must ensure there is nothing in front of the control panel anytime. If you cannot turn off the power, you can use dry rope, dry clothing or some wood objects to separate the victim from the power source. So some wood objects at home may be helpful. If the victim is not breathing, apply mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Call for emergency help. Even if a person seems OK, it is important to go to see a doctor. Internal organs could be affected several hours after the electrical accident. And some injuries may not be easy to see.
