safety resources for kids
Around two in every five Queensland households have children living there. Electricity can be a big risk for little people, so we’ve published new resources to help parents and teachers protect kids from electrical risks.
For parents there’s a flyer on child-proofing their homes by having safety switches installed, not overloading power points, only using licensed electricians, and taking a few other simple steps.
Child-proofing homes is only the first step, so there are also resources for teachers to help explain to children why it’s important to respect electricity and how to stay safe.
For primary school students, there’s a chatterbox (also known as a paper fortune teller) they can cut out and fold themselves. It has simple electrical safety messages, like turning off the power at the wall before plugging in electronics, never using broken chargers, and keeping electrical devices away from water.
