Kids, especially very young children, very eager to explore the world, can be really inventive when it comes to playing with things that they shouldn’t even touch, that’s why child-proofing everything that runs on electricity in the home as well as educating the kids about correct behaviour is essential for the safety of kids. Here are some tips:
- Making the home a safe place – unused outlets should be covered with childproof inserts that cannot be removed by the kids. Extension cords should be always covered to prevent tripping over and other similar accidents. Electrical devices, including television sets and kitchen appliances, pose not only the risk of electric shock, they can also fall on the child, therefore they should always be placed out of reach for children;
- Educating the child – teaching your children about the dangers of everyday life is an important process that should involve teaching them about the dangers of the contact with electricity as well. Teach your children not to put their fingers into electrical outlets, not to place metal objects into toasters, never to use an electric device around water, never to pour water into an electric device, not to climb on power poles, not to touch anything that has a warning sign and also educate your child about the safe way to use power cords. Any and all electrical systems should be inspected by an electrician Denver supplies to keep all systems running smoothly.
