About Electrical Safety Day

Electrical Safety Day is a province-wide initiative that promotes electrical safety awareness in schools across B.C. This event, held annually in May, encourages teachers to deliver engaging classroom activities that make students aware of electrical hazards and how to stay safe.


Overview and outcomes

Safety is one of our core values. To help educate the next generation of British Columbians about the hazards around electricity, we've developed new activities that highlight the dangers and emphasize how to be safe.


You'll lead an interactive video quiz in your class that illustrates situations where students could be at risk. This activity reinforces the importance of electrical safety, and encourages students to share the message of safety with their family and friends.


If you're unable to play video in your class or would like to extend your students’ learning about electrical hazards, activities with games and puzzles are also available that make learning about safety fun.




Available activities

Available until May 31.
