In celebration of Electrical Fire Safety Month this May, the Electric Safety Foundation International (ESFI) has launched the third edition of its National Electrical Safety Month publication, Electrical Safety Illustrated.
May 2016’s Electrical Fire Safety Month theme is “At Home and at Work, Make Fire Safety Everyone’s Responsibility.” The May 2016 issue of Electrical Safety Illustrated is a great resource for anyone who’s interested in learning more about home and workplace fire safety.
The publication offers tips for workplace electrical safety and home electrical safety, and it’s available for free on ESFI’s website.
Workplace & Home Electrical Safety Tips
Workplace electrical safety tips include updated recommendations on lockout/tagout procedures and testing before you touch. Some of the publication’s home electrical safety advice covers safe extension cord use and how not to overload your home’s electrical circuits.

Electrical Safety Illustrated also offers tips on how to educate your kids and your community about electrical safety. From social media that you can easily share with friends to interactive electrical safety activities and cartoons for kids, the publication includes easy-to-understand graphics and is a great resource for families and businesses, alike.
