You can implement safety checklists when setting up Christmas decorations and xmas lights to ensure no one gets electrocuted. Hazards can develop quickly without prior warning. Make sure you thoroughly check electrical Christmas tree lights and decorative lights before installation. Furthermore check for damaged electrical cables, lights, power plugs, power boards and sockets before and after installation. Failure can result in fatal electrocution. Especially with children and pets enchanted by flashing lights and moving xmas decorations.
Ensure you utilise xmas low-voltage products and test residual-current devices before going live.
