Electrical Safety For Boaters

Summer isn’t over yet and that means we still have a few more weeks to head out on the boat! Even though boating is often considered a carefree activity, there are lots of potential electrical hazards that you should be aware of before leaving the dock.

See below to find out how to stay safe while on the water:

  • No swimming near the dock. Both docks and boats can leak electricity into the water that can electrocute swimmers.
  • Always be aware of your surroundings and keep an eye out for power lines, fishing lines, and swimmers. Maintain a safe distance of at least 10 feet from all power lines.
  • Make sure ground fault circuit interrupters are installed on your boat. Don’t forget to test them once a month.
  • Always use shore or marine power cords and make sure they aren’t frayed or damaged.
  • Have your boat’s electrical system inspected by a certified marine electrician. They will be able to make sure everything meets local NEC, NFPA and ABYC safety codes and standards.

Don’t let the rest of the summer pass you by. Get out there and enjoy the last few weeks of warm weather before cooler temperatures settle in. And remember, whenever you need electrical service in Rochester you can count on the experts at Lon Lockwood Electric!
