Keep Kids Safe

Playing Outdoors

Remind children that when playing outdoors, it is very dangerous to touch electrical equipment. Kids should not play with locked steel cabinets that contain transformers. If a ball or toy goes over a fence with a “Danger” sign, children should ask their parents to call the power company.

Electrical Safety Education Program

Our children’s electrical safety education program is designed to educate children (elementary students up to 13 years old) about ways to protect themselves from dangers posed by electrical facilities and encourage the safe use of electricity.

Each year we visit schools across Ontario and present our Hazard Hamlet simulator that teaches children dangers to be aware of. Students also receive safety booklets featuring our fictional character Harry Hazard as he learns about how to stay safe around electricity.
