Extension Cord Safety

 
  • Inspect & Protect. Check extension cords for damage. Replace - don’t attempt to fix - cords that have been cut or damaged.
  • Check the cord’s electrical capacity and do not overload it.
  • If a cord or plug is warm or hot to the touch, unplug it immediately.
  • Polarized plugs have one blade wider than the other and should only be used with polarized extension cords.
  • Use heavy-duty three-prong extension cord for tools with three-prong plugs. Never remove or bend back the third prong.
  • Use only extension cords that are approved by a recognized testing laboratory, such as Underwriters Laboratories (UL).
  • When outdoors, use extension cords designed for outdoor use.
  • Plug outdoor electric lights and decorations into Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI) outlets.
  • Keep extension cords away from moisture, heat, and metal pipes.
  • Never puncture insulation of electrical cords by nailing them to any surfaces.
  • Never place electrical cords across traffic areas or under carpets.
  • Don’t pinch electrical cords behind or under furniture.
  • Don’t use extension cords as permanent wiring.
  • Make sure your tools are turned off before connecting them to an extension cord.
  • When disconnecting the cord, pull the plug rather than the cord itself.
  • Unplug and put away extension cords that are not being used.
