How Common Are Electrical Injuries Among Children?

Each year, emergency rooms take in an estimated 2,400 children for injuries associated with electrical outlets. These incidents can happen even when adults are present in the room. Typical items that children try to insert into outlets include:

  • Keys
  • Paper clips
  • Coins
  • Hairpins
  • Tools
  • Nail files
  • Jewelry
  • Belt buckles
  • Knives
  • And more

These objects can cause life-threatening injuries if they come into contact with live electrical wires. Fortunately, childproofing your outlets can help prevent these accidents from happening in the first place.

What Is a Childproof Outlet?

As the name suggests, a childproof outlet is a device that prevents children from inserting objects into electrical slots. At Modern Electrical Services, we use spring-loaded covers that fit over the entire outlet.

These covers are easy for adults to use but difficult for children to remove. You only have to press down on the cover to release it, and it automatically pops back into place when you let go.

These tamper-proof receptacles are so effective that the National Electrical Code now requires all new construction and renovation projects to include childproof outlets.
