How to Prevent Power Trips

Companies rely on electricity to keep Singapore’s population comfortable. It provides electricity for areas to be more comfortable and makes computers more efficient. It can negatively affect the company and workers if the power supply is interrupted, as in the case of a power trip.

Other than work, there are many other places that could be affected by frequent power outages. These areas include hospitals, colleges, shopping centres, and many more. To avoid trips like the ones below, it is important to have basic electrical knowledge.

Proper electric wiring

To avoid electrical trips in HDB flats or commercial buildings like an office or hospital, ensure that the electrical wiring is installed correctly. Poor wiring can lead to many HDB electrical power trips. This is why only qualified and skilled electricians should be allowed to work on these electrical systems.

Don’t overload your electric mains

Make sure your appliances have the right power level before you use them. Stop building power sockets that have a limited power supply if you’re doing home renovations. If you plug in multiple appliances at once, overloading can occur. Overloading the mains can cause a power trip. It is therefore important to keep your mains off overload.

Make sure you have backup power sources

Power trips can be caused either by severe damage to the electric transmission or failures at power stations in an area. These events, which are usually beyond your control, will eventually cause a blackout. To ensure that electrical appliances work, make sure your building has an alternate energy source such as an electric generator.

Make sure to use electric power correctly

Improper use of electricity could lead to an electric ride. To avoid power failure, there are several risk prevention procedures.

What to do during a power failure

Your refrigerator, water heater, air conditioner and water heater will all stop working if there is a power outage. An electricity outage will undoubtedly cause many inconveniences that will make it difficult to complete your daily tasks.

However, it is crucial that you are able to identify what to do and avoid in an event like this. Let’s talk about the things you should not do during a power outage.

Don’t Forget to Unplug

Unplug electrical devices immediately after a power outage. It is possible to damage your electrical appliances by not unplugging them immediately after a power outage. This is due to the spikes and surges that will occur when the electricity comes back on. This is an effective preventive measure to protect electrical appliances from possible damage. However, you can leave a light fixture on so you always know when it is on.

Don’t Touch a Dead Wire

You should not touch down a downed power line if it goes out. Although it may appear that a power line is dead, it can still be in control and cause serious injury to anyone who comes into contact with them. You should also keep a minimum distance of 30 feet from any down wire during power outages. You should keep at least 60 meters distance if the soil is wet. If a wire falls on your car, you should not be driving around in it. You could get electrocuted and you need to avoid hitting the floor or the car.

Avoid Candles

Stop using candles if there is a power outage in Singapore. Unattended candles could cause fires. There are many battery-powered flashlights or LED lights that you can use during such situations. These lights are very easy to use. These methods are better than candles and should be used in power outages. If you are forced to use candles, ensure that they are turned off.

Don’t Open the Fridge or Freezer

Regularly opening the freezer can cause food to spoil faster, as it doesn’t keep cold for very long. Keep the refrigerator doors shut if you don’t need to add ice. A half-freezer will keep your freezer cold for up to 24 hours, while a full freezer can stay cold for approximately two days. You can keep water bottles in the freezer to keep them cool. If you prefer to keep food cold, place it in a cooler filled with ice. You should throw away perishable foods like chicken, fish, and eggs. They can spoil quicker than other food in your fridge.
