Your home and surrounding property should be a safe place for yourself, your family, and visitors. It's important to maintain it well and take a few precautions to avoid any unpleasant accidents. Here are four steps you can take to make your home and property safer for everyone:
1. Construct a fence around your property.
A fence is a great idea for several reasons. First, it can enhance your privacy, which many people value highly. It can also deter burglars and trespassers, which is good for you and your family. A fence can also deter small children from wandering onto your property. This can keep them safe from harm, so you won't have to worry about liability for any accidents. A fence can also keep your pets from getting out, where they might get lost or get hit by a car.
2. Train your dog well.
It may sound like a good idea to have a guard dog, but you should make sure any dogs you keep outside are well-trained. If your dog gets loose and hurts someone, your dog may get put down, and you can be liable for the injury caused. If you must have a guard dog, make sure that it only barks at strangers. Teach your dog not to bite people, in order to avoid any unfortunate incidents with the mailman.
3. Make sure all hazards are clearly marked.
Some things can be hazardous if handled improperly, such as transformers and electrical cables, but they can't be removed due to necessity. In these cases, you should make sure all hazards are clearly marked. It's worth the investment to buy proper signage for all your electrical equipment. Purchase transformer labels that clearly indicate the voltage and hazard that your transformer box contains, and post them clearly.
You should also purchase cable markers. These signs are especially important in the case of underground cables, such as those that are run for fiber optics. Proper signage will prevent anyone from accidentally damaging one of your cables while digging. This can preserve their health, while also saving you the cost of repairs.
4. Practice basic electrical safety.
There are lots of hazards indoors too, but you can mitigate the risk by following a few basic safety precautions. Never plug large appliances into power strips, since this can cause a power surge that ends in an electrical fire. Also avoid "daisy chaining" power strips together, since that's another fire hazard. You can save electricity and lower your risk of an electrical fire by unplugging electronics and appliances when they're not in use.Share
