How do I know if something is electrically safe?

Electricity is a wonderous technology but it still has its fair share of dangers to the unwary user.

Things to look out for:

  • Visible / Exposed Wires
  • Discoloured Cables
  • Burn Marks
  • Frayed Cables
  • Electric Sparks

Things to listen for:

  • Buzzing
  • Static or humming noises

Visible wires or anything else that appears out of the ordinary can be a danger, even if your device or appliance is still working. If you notice any discoloured cables, burn marks or exposed/frayed wires – disconnect your appliance from the power point immediately and bring it to us (or a qualified electrician) for repair. It’s not worth the risk.
