2014 Art Contest
Teach Electrical Safety!
We use electricity all day, every day, so it’s very important to use it safely because it can be very dangerous. We invite you to use
your artistic talents and creativity to design a poster that helps the PUD teach others how to be safe around electricity. Listed
below are some tips to get you started. Feel free to use one of these tips or come up with one on your own.
• Never climb trees near power lines
• Stay away from power lines on the ground
• Fly your kite AWAY from power lines
• Don’t overload outlets with too many plugs
• Keep radios and dryers away from baths or showers
• Never insert a metal object into an appliance
• Don’t touch anything electrical when you are wet
• Never pull a plug out of an electrical outlet by the cord
For more ideas, you can also watch the Electrical Safety World videos on our website. Go to www.snopud.com and click on
Education and then on Electrical Safety.
