It is important for all commercial buildings to ensure electrical safety because a single mistake can lead to severe consequences. Management at commercial buildings should provide a safe environment to all offices and shops because it can be held liable if any sort of negligence comes from their side.

It is important to create awareness regarding electrical safety and its importance because it is not limited to current only but can lead to fire incidents too. This article will let you know important tips that are easy to follow and you can ensure electrical safety at your place. Let’s explore:

Keep an Eye on Damaged Outlets

You should keep an eye on all damaged outlets because if a person goes near them, he may get an electric shock. Management staff in buildings should identify broken or damaged outlets on their weekly survey and replacing them immediately is important.

You should simply put a danger board near those outlets while replacing them and for this purpose, make sure to contact a trustworthy electrician only. It is also crucial to choose top-quality outlets only because they do not get damaged easily and serve the purpose for a long time.

Avoid Extension Cords

It can prove great if you avoid extension cords in commercial places because they can disturb the walking space in the office. If the wire of such cords gets pulled, it can lead to electric shock and the device attached to such cords may also get damaged.

So, it would be better if you avoid such extensions and rely on direct connections. The safety of electric appliances is also possible if you connect them directly with the socket instead of the extension cord.

Trust Professional Electrician Only

It is not easy to manage different maintenance tasks in commercial buildings so it is important to trust a team of experienced electricians only who can do their job better. A professional electrician knows the reason for the fault and he makes sure to fix it completely. Professionals are certified persons who pass the test by regulatory bodies and they ensure all precautions before getting their hands on electrical work.

Rely on Top-Quality Wiring

The wiring of the commercial building should be of high quality because it can sustain shocks and short circuits. Poor quality wiring always fails in providing the best use and it causes damage to expensive electric appliances too. Wiring is usually installed at the time of construction because under-floor wiring is important. In short, you should ensure electrician quality work at the time of construction to avoid unfavorable consequences in the future.

Turn off Appliances When Not in Use

You should ask the staff to turn off all appliances when not in use because excessive usage can lead to damage. Moreover, when you leave the place at night, investigate all areas to know that everything is turned off. You can even shut down the main circuit to avoid any sort of damage.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons.

When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
