Home safety is often over looked due to the inability to see the hazards. Take electrical shock hazards. Exposed wiring in basements or attics are potentially dangerous. Electricity runs on these wires unnoticed to the human eye. And still most home owners take this for granted because it’s not visible. Accidents happen by putting away storage items or hiding gifts. Yet, if you were to touch these wires wrong you could be injured or quite possibly killed.
ground fault circuit interrupters and arc fault circuit interrupters are also devices to protect you from potentially dangerous situations you can not see. There are many home safety items to protect you from a time that if some thing should go wrong, a toaster falling into the sink or an extension cord melting from being to hot, that these devices will shut off the power.
