Keeping Your Bathroom Hazard Free

Here are some good tips to avoid hazards in your bathroom:

  • Never plug in an electrical device where it could fall into the water. Modern bathroom receptacles have ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCI) to help prevent electrocution, but the safest practice is to keep plugged-in devices away from water.
  • If there are small children in the home, keep the bathroom door locked from the outside at all times. It’s easy to install a deadbolt high on the door that only adults can reach. This safety tip prevents children from wandering into the bathroom alone where they could get hurt or even sometimes drown.
  • Mop or dry up standing water. Puddles can lead to slips and falls and increase the risk of electrocution.
  • Install anti-scald devices on faucets and showerheads. That way, even if a young child cranks the hot water all the way up, they won’t get burned. Keeping the hot water heater temperature set at 120 degrees F is another method for preventing scalding at the tap. (Don’t turn the water heater any lower than this or bacterial growth in the tank could become a problem.)
  • Ensure adequate bathroom lighting. Change out bulbs when they burn out so the bathroom is well illuminated when you flip the switch. Also, consider placing a nightlight in or right outside the bathroom to light the way at night.

Follow these best practices to ensure your bathroom is hazard-free and your family and pets are safe!
