Electrical products form an essential part of our everyday lives. Almost in every home, there are electric products ranging from power outlets, extension leads, phone chargers, computer cables among others.
Unfortunately, none of these electrical products have been creatively designed with the safety of the children. The majority of them that have been designed in a way that they can minimize the chances of a child being electrocuted have the ends being left naked and this still poses a great risk to children.
However, most of the electric products companies are trying to minimize the risk by producing supplement products that help in preventing the children from being in contact with the naked cable ends. For instance, some companies have introduced cable/charger caps that can be inserted at the heads of the charger to prevent the chances of being electrocuted. This is a great invention that has
helped prevent children from electric shock from the chargers.
However, some people have complained of the caps not being firm and can be removed by children at any time. In addition, double cord and head coating have been seen as a solution to minimize children’s electrocution. In this case, the cords are coated with two layers of insulators so that, in the event, the outer layer tears out, the inner layer of the cord insulator will prevent the child from
being electrocuted. Similarly, the heads are being coated with a plastic or rubber insulator on the outer part of the head where the child may be in contact with and this minimizes the chances of electric shock to the child. An example of insulated cord heads is the network/ethernet cords which have a plastic insulator fitted at both ends of the cords.
