National Electrical Safety Month

What is National Electrical Safety Month?

The Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) is a non-profit organization dedicated exclusively to promoting electrical safety in the home, school, and workplace.  To commemorate National Electrical Safety Month, ESFI spearheads an annual campaign to educate key audiences about the steps that can be taken in order to reduce the number of electrically-related fires, fatalities, injuries, and property loss. ESFI's National Electrical Safety Month 2018 campaign features a comprehensive collection of new and updated resources to help facilitate an effective electrical safety awareness campaign for your community, organization, school, or family.  Included is an extensive collection of useful fact sheets and related safety tips, plus templates and tools you can use to promote electrical safety and National Electrical Safety Month in your home, school, community, or workplace.  We have even provided media outreach materials and social media content to further spread our life-saving campaign messages.

Raising awareness about electrical hazards is the key to reducing home electrical fires, injuries and death, which is why we developed ESFI's 2018 National Electrical Safety Month Electrical Safety Advocate Guide.  Together, we can reduce the number of electrically-related deaths and injuries – one home, one school, and one workplace at a time.

National Electrical Safety Month 2018 Campaign Overview

In celebration of Electrical Safety Month 2018, ESFI is excited to announce the launch of the fifth installment of its National Electrical Safety Month publication,  Electrical Safety Illustrated. This year's theme "Understanding the Code that Keeps Us Safe," focuses on the importance of the National Electrical Code and its three year cycle.
