5 Electrical Safety Tips For This Rainy Season

Safety tips for the rainy season on VTpass

While the rainy season this year may seem to have arrived earlier than usual, we are very glad that the hot air has been lifted.

Marked with increased rainfall, thunderstorms, high winds, and flood, the rainy season could see a lot of electrical accidents, especially since water is a good conductor of electricity.

However, that informs the need for us to pay more attention to safety when dealing with electrical appliances this season.

Here are a few electrical safety tips you may need in this rainy season:

  1. Stay away from Flooded Areas:

Everyone is adviced to stay indoor or to find the closest shelter in the event of rain or storm.  But if you have to go out, it would be wise to avoid flooded areas, especially those close to heavy electrical equipment.

2. Stay away from power lines during a storm:

The human body is a ready conductor of electricity and as such,  It is advised that you stay at least 10 feet away from a power line and anything touching it.

The proper way to move away from the line is to shuffle away with small steps, keeping your feet together and on the ground at all times. This way, it will minimize the potential for a strong electric shock.

3. Never leave Cut Wires astray:

In cases where you have wires on the floor or lying on the road in your area, it will be wise to either get a DisCo official to reconnect or safely tuck away the wires before the event of a rainstorm.

These wires may cause severe electrical hazards if they come in contact with water (provided current is flowing through the wire).

4. Avoid outdoor electrical tasks during rainfall:

Avoid high altitude during rainfall, as that presents a real danger of being struck by lightning – especially when climbing poles.

Never attempt electrical chores if you are not a trained engineer but if you have to, avoid doing this under the rain.

5. Take caution when close to Water:

Never touch anything electrical with wet hands or bare feet, always use caution when operating electrical appliances near water sources and all appliances.
