Mitigation Steps

Elevate cords to prevent tripping hazards and being subject to wet conditions. Always remove cords from receptacles by the plug. Pulling by the cord damages them. Be sure that cords are not pinched in doors, drawers, equipment, or anything else as this alsodamages the cords. Avoid placing cords where they are subject to being damaged by vehicles and mobile equipment.
