8 Electrical Safety Tips for the Kitchen

8 Clectrical Safety Tips For the Kitchen Plug Sockets Plugs should be located at least 30 cms horizontally from the sink to minimise the likelihood of water entering the sockets. Wet Hands Never use any plugs or switches when your hands are wet. Be Vigilant Keep an eye out for signs of electrical problems, such as scorch marks around plugs, hot plug casings, flickering lights and fuse boxes that keep tripping. Extension Leads Washing machines and other kitchen appliances can use a huge amount of energy, so do not connect these items together with an extension cord – only use one appliance per plug socket. Onplug Switch off and unplug all kitchen items when they are not in use, and do not try to retrieve toast from a toaster or fill up a kettle or iron when they are plugged in. Empty House Do not use dishwashers, washing machines or other appliances when you are out of the house or asleep, as you will not be able to respond to an electrical fire. Fridge Freezer Keep your fridge freezer well defrosted – not only will this make it more energy-efficient, but it will also reduce its likelihood of overheating. Do Not Cover Many kitchen appliances, such as microwaves and ovens, have vents to prevent overheating. Do not cover these vents, such as by storing items on top of your microwave.
