NAME OF THE CLUB:“ENERGY SAVING & SAFETY CLUB”
- To make people aware about ELECTRICAL SAFETY.
- The aim of club is make people aware about the safety of environment
- To make student aware about the pollution free energies.
- To provide knowledge of Solar Energy and its associated advantages.
Electrical safety in the home
Look after appliance cords
- Keep electrical appliances, their cords and any extension leads away from water. Ensure cords are in good condition – if they’re worn or frayed, don’t use the appliance until it’s been repaired by a licensed electrician.
- If you decide to throw away the appliance, make sure it can’t be used by someone else.
- Only ever disconnect an appliance at the outlet by pulling the plug, not the cord. This extends the life of your appliance.
Avoid ‘double adaptor’ connections
Overloading can occur if too many cords are connected to outlets designed for only one or two plugs. Use power boards with in-built safety devices to avoid a power outlet overload.
Childproof your outlets
Use childproof plugs in electrical outlets to deter children from poking small items into them.
Get a licensed electrician to do your wiring
Call a licensed electrician if you need electrical wiring or repairs, no matter how minor the job.
Install safety switches
Have safety switches installed at your meter box. As a general rule, electrical equipment should only be used when connected to a safety switch.
Look out for overhead lines
Avoid coming into contact with overhead lines. If you’re working near them, always keep a safe distance – at least 6.4 meters for wires on poles and 10 meters for wires on towers. Keep this in mind when installing antennas, picking fruit or pruning trees, and using a ladder or a metal tape measure.
Look out for water leaks
Water is a good conductor of electricity. If water leaks into the light or power circuits in your home, a fault may develop, which could result in a fire or someone experiencing electric shock. As soon as you notice a water leak, have it repaired by a licensed plumber.
In the event of electric shock
- If you feel a tingle when you touch a water fitting, the grounding of your electrical installation could be faulty. If it’s safe to do so, shut off the power at the main switch (usually found in the meter box) and call a licensed electrician to investigate.
- If you go to help someone who’s receiving an electric shock, turn off the power at the main switch first. If the current can't be turned off, use a non-conducting object, such as a broom, chair, rug or rubber doormat to push the person away from the source of the current.
- If possible, stand on something dry that doesn't conduct electricity, such as a rubber mat or folded newspapers.
- Call for emergency assistance and stay with the person until help arrives.
To Save Energy in Your Home
Switch appliances off at the wall
TVs, DVD players, computers, stereos and game consoles still use energy in standby mode. When not in use, switch these appliances off at the wall.
Use a power board
A power board can supply electricity to multiple appliances at the same time and allows you to switch off all appliances using the same switch.
Use lamps or spotlights
- If you only need a small amount of light, use lamps or spotlights instead of main lights.
- Use energy-saving globes
- Change your old light globes to compact fluorescent ones.
- How many lights are on?
- Turn off lights in the rooms you’re not using.
Thaw food in the fridge first to reduce cooking time. Microwaves use less energy than an oven. When using an oven, avoid continuously opening the door.
Using the stovetop
Keep lids on pots when cooking to reduce the amount of time and energy used. Dinner will be cooked faster too.
Use an electric kettle rather than the stove.
Use the economy cycle for everyday washing and only run the dishwasher when it's full. This helps save water too.
Fridge and freezer
Set your fridge temperature to 4-5 degrees and your freezer temperature between -15 and -18 degrees Celsius. Keep fridges and freezers in a cool, well-ventilated spot away from the oven and the sun to save electricity. Keep a five-centimeter gap around your fridge so air can circulate freely.
