Safety for Sure
Safety for Sure is a Content Series that takes a deep dive into how you can safely minimise the impact of load shedding to protect your home appliances and keep you and your loved ones safe.
Load shedding is not going anywhere – well, at least for now. Gear up for load shedding with these valuable tips from Momentum Insure:
- Invest in surge protector plugs for all electronic equipment and appliances.
- Start practising the "power-of switch off" to prevent damage from electric surges. This includes geysers, fridges, TVs and any other large appliances. Wait for at least 15 to 20 minutes after the power has been restored before switching them back on.
- Always ensure that all your equipment and systems installed are SABS (South African Bureau of Standards) approved.
