Handling electricity

Electricity can be dangerous to handle and it's important to do it right.

Here are some useful tips on how to handle electricity safely:

  • Do not dim lights by covering lamps.
  • It is important to keep a distance between a light bulb and a combustible material.

  • It is good to use sockets with child protection.
  • Unplug string lights while changing the bulbs.
  • All electronic devices should be CE marked.
