Kids curious questions about electricity

The NICEIC (the niceic are several organisations which regulate the work of electricians in the UK) have launched a TV commercial promoting the use of registered electricians. Kids Questions features NICEIC’s Senior Technical Presenter Darren Staniforth giving a talk about electricity to a group of schoolchildren.

The message that the commercial gives is a message that I also promote. When it comes to dealing with electrics some people might think they know a little bit, but in reality they don’t have all the answers. That is why it is always best left to the professionals.

How to keep children safe from electrical danger

Keeping young children safe from the dangers of electricity can be a stressful time. From ensuring that appliances are kept out of reach to ensuring that nothing gets poked into plug sockets, the fear of electrocution of our children is one of the biggest electrical fears that face householders.

Avoid electrical DIY

As an electrician in Hampshire, I work in many homes where children live. From expectant parents preparing the nursery for their new arrival to families with teenagers who have all manner of electrical appliance is their rooms. The truth is, we never really know for certain what our children are doing from one minute to the next, and a simple mistake where electricity is concerned can cause electrical injury or worse still death.
