Safety for kids
Be a Hero - Safety for Kids
We use electricity almost every minute of the day. It lets us turn things on - like the lights, TV’s, fridges and ovens.
BUT, electricity can also be very powerful and very dangerous – it can travel through people and give them a shock!
SOME IMPORTANT SAFETY MESSAGES TO REMEMBER
- Stay away from power boxes, substations and electrical worksites
- Never jump, sit, kick or poke anything inside a power box
- Don’t throw things into power lines. If you see shoes on the power lines, do not try to get them down!
- Flying a kite into power lines can give you a shock! Make sure you always look up and check for power lines before flying a kite
- Stay away from power lines that have fallen on the ground. You can still get a shock!
- Trees growing into power lines can give you a shock. Make sure you always look up and check for power lines before climbing a tree
Safe Sparks Programme
We offer a safety education programme for schools in our areas, completely free of charge.
