ELECTRICITY WISE

DURATION:  30 mins

OUTCOME:  Deepen understanding about the potential risks surrounding electricity and the best course of action to minimise the risks.

RATIONALE:  In this modern world, electricity often remains misunderstood. To many it is a mystery, a magical “thing” that comes out of the wall socket. And because the energy itself is invisible, sockets, open wires and broken junctions don’t initially look dangerous at all to the uninformed. For this reason electricity is often the culprit in child injuries. Indeed it can be life threatening in some circumstances.

KEY MESSAGES:

• Electricity helps us everyday to live better and easier lives. But electricity can also be very dangerous.

• The most important thing to remember is that electricity is INVISIBLE – You cannot see it until it’s too late.

• Do not play with electricity.

• Always turn off the socket before plugging or unplugging anything.

• If you see cables that are broken or torn or don’t look right, tell an adult about them straight away.
