Tips to protect your children from electric shock

Electricity is a normal part of everyday life and it’s easy to forget how dangerous it can be.

Here are a few tips to protect your children from electric shock in your family home.

Cover electrical outlets 
Use childproof plugs in unused powerpoints so little ones can’t prise items into the sockets.

Store appliances out of reach
Switch off and unplug all electrical appliances when not in use.

Make it difficult to pull out cords
Don’t permit children to touch or play with electrical cords and make sure electrical cords are not dangling from benches or within your child’s reach.

You can also buy a cord-hiding device to keep cords away from little fingers. 

Safety switches
Use power boards with inbuilt safety switches when plugs are unavoidably within your child’s reach.

When they are old enough to understand, explain the dangers of electricity and teach them how to use your household electrical appliances safely.

What our clients think...

Pete sorted out a tricky TV on a wall install for me including makings cables tidy. Highly recommend!

Phillip Broom

Extremely happy to recomend pete and terrasol. We decided to use terrasol to instal our solar system. Pete worked extremely closely with us to design and create a solar system which met our needs and was inside our budget. He was extremely helpful in recomending the types of pannels and what kind of inverter to instal especially with so many different options. He was extremely prompt in getting the job done and had the system running within 3 days. He even went an extra mile and came back after work one evening to complete configuring our system. I am extremely happy with the service pete provided and it shows he genuanely cares for his customers. I would be more than happy to recommend him to others and will definately be using him again

Pete has helped us out with residential lighting. Nothing is too much of a problem, so obliging, efficient and neat and tidy workmanship. Thoroughly recommend Pete and Terrasol
