Risk; Electrical Fire Hazards. An electrical system can deliver energy to a very small location, raising the temperature and causing a fire.

Some appliances heat up by design, and the heat needs to be controlled. Hazards Short Circuit – Generally the result of two conductors touching when they should not touch.

Can result in very high. Using wires with inappropriate size for the current can cause overheating and fires to occur. Use the correct wire suitable for the operation and the electrical load to work on.

Use the correct extension cord designed for heavy-duty use. Also, do not overload an outlet and use proper circuit breakers. Perform regular fire risk assessments to. Electrical fire safety prevention strategies and outreach materials, including community and school presentations, instructions for testing an AFCI, and a home fire safety checklist.

The Electrical Safety Foundation International is a non-profit organization dedicated exclusively to promoting electrical safety at home and in the workplace.
