Light Your Landscaping with Low Voltage This Summer – Part 1

After beautifying your home with a new wall, driveway, walkway, or landscaping, you may have overlooked the idea of accentuating these new exterior features with low voltage lighting. Done skillfully, lighting design can make your house look much more appealing at night.


There is also an important safety aspect to installing exterior lighting for both residents and visitors.  People will find it easier to find and maneuver on steps and walkways because of the improved visibility. Security will also be improved because a well-lit exterior will discourage would-be intruders from entering your property.

How to Keep Your Office Electrically Safe – Part 2

As discussed in Part 1, typical offices are thought to be low-risk areas, but existing hazards still remain. Safety measures must still be carried out by staff members, and regular electrical inspections must be performed by licensed electricians.


Part 2 will discuss Employee Awareness and Safety Tips.

Employee Awareness


Below are the electrical hazards that employees should be trained to detect and report for the prevention of injuries and fires:




  • Buzzing electrical outlets

  • Electrical equipment emanating an odd or burning smell

  • Frayed electrical cords with exposed wires

  • Improperly working equipment

  • Overheated electrical cords or equipment

  • Overloaded outlets, extension cords, or power strips


Supervisors should be advised of defective electrical equipment and accessories, which should be quickly taken off the premises as soon as possible.


Overloaded outlets can be addressed by hiring a licensed electrician to install more outlets in the areas where needed.



Safety Tips


According to the Electrical Safety Foundation International non-profit (ESFI), overloaded electrical circuits are both fire and electrocution hazards. Many of the ESFI safety tips below will help keep a workplace safe from the related electrical hazards.




  • Avoid folding or knotting electrical cords.

  • Electrical cords should not be placed in heavy foot traffic areas or beneath a carpet.

  • Keep a 3-foot minimum of clearance area in front of an electrical panel.

  • Never force a three-prong electrical plug into a two-slot outlet.

  • Nonessential electrical items should remain unplugged until needed.

  • Power strips should be placed in areas with proper ventilation.

  • Run electrical cords next to walls to avoid people tripping on them.

  • Turn off and unplug electrical equipment or appliances before cleaning or maintenance.


An office electrical safety inspection should be performed by a licensed electrician as required by state and local regulations to ensure the safety of employees. The home offices of entrepreneurs should also get a regular inspection to keep residents safe.
