Coinciding with National Electrical Safety Month, an annual campaign to educate key audiences about the steps that can be taken in order to reduce the number of electrical-related fires, fatalities, and injuries, NFPA has created a new tip sheet–Electrical Safety around Swimming Pools, Hot Tubs and Spas.

The tip sheet provides information on how to be aware of electrical hazards while enjoying the water and measures to take for safety.

In addition, NFPA, working with the Electrical Safety Foundation International, has facts and resources addressing the common causes of shock and electrocution, both at home and on the job.
