Hundreds of people are killed and thousands are injured in preventable electricity-related accidents every year. Yet our dependence on electricity grows, making accident prevention more and more critical. One of the best instruments for prevention is education.
Each year in May, Orrville Utilities partners with the Electrical Safety Foundation International for National Electrical Safety Month. The aim of this partnership is to promote electrical safety awareness in the home, school, and workplace. May is National Electrical Safety Month, but electrical safety should be a priority, every hour of every day of every year.
