National Electrical Safety Month - May 2014: Back to Basics with Electrical Safety Illustrated








What is National Electrical Safety Month?


The Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) is a non-profit organization dedicated exclusively to promoting electrical safety in the home, school, and workplace.  To commemorate National Electrical Safety Month, ESFI spearheads an annual campaign to educate key audiences about the steps that can be taken in order to reduce the number of electrically-related fires, fatalities, injuries, and property loss.  ESFI's National Electrical Safety Month 2014 campaign features a comprehensive collection of new and updated resources to help facilitate an effective electrical safety awareness campaign for your community, organization, school, or family.  Included is an extensive collection of useful fact sheets and related safety tips, plus templates and tools you can use to promote electrical safety and National Electrical Safety Month in your home, school, community, or workplace.  We have even provided media outreach materials and social media content to further spread our life-saving campaign messages.


Raising awareness about electrical hazards is the key to reducing home electrical fires, injuries and death, which is why we developed ESFI's 2014 National Electrical Safety Month Electrical Safety Advocate Guide.  Together, we can reduce the number of electrically-related deaths and injuries – one home, one school, and one workplace at a time.



National Electrical Safety Month 2014 Campaign Overview


For Electrical Safety Month 2014, ESFI is excited to announce the launch of Electrical Safety Illustrated. In this magazine we will discuss timely electrical safety issues and equip you with the knowledge to better protect your home, family and communities from electrical hazards.


While we touch on a variety of topics, we recognize that we must also go back to the basics to ensure a fundamental understanding surrounding electrical safety.  Each section provides only an overview of the issues and we encourage you to visit our website,, to delve deeper into the subjects.  We also invite you to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube to stay abreast of emerging electrical safety concerns and receive reminders about how you can protect yourself.
