  • Switch off appliances when not in use.
  • Always keep lighters and matches away from children and educate them that they are “tools not toys” to only be used by responsible adults.
  • Remember to take extra care with any stored chemicals and fuels and always refuel mowers, edgers etc when they are cold and in the open.
