Making Safe Electrical Repairs
Turn the power off before starting
Switch off the electricity at your home’s breaker box. If you’re not sure which switches to flip for certain rooms, turn off the main breaker.
Get to know your electrical layout
Make sure you’re comfortable with your home’s electricity set up, and that you can identify different types of wire before making repairs.
Practise rewiring plugs
If you’ve identified a plug as the problem, ensure you rewire it with undamaged wires and the right size fuse. Practise on a spare plug first.
Dry your surrounding area
Ensure that electrical repairs are done in a dry environment. If there is damp on the appliance, wall, or floor, then don’t start working.
Avoid using metal ladders
If electrical repairs require you to use a ladder, avoid standard aluminum ladders. It is safer to use ones made of non-conductive materials.
