The first point to make in response to your question is that if you are not sure what safety measures need to be taken, then you are definitely better off leaving the work to a qualified professional.

Find the relevant electrical certification boards in your country, and make sure that whoever you employ is appropriately qualified and certified to work with electricity.

Don't be tempted to cut corners and hire on the basis of price alone, and don't do the work yourself if you don't know what you're doing - bad wiring can give you an electrical shock or cause a fire.

If you need to learn more about electrical safety for your role in the workplace, then your employer should make the relevant training available to you.

As general safety advice, you should always make sure that any appliance which is not in use is unplugged from the mains supply.

Don't leave loose cables lying around either - wind them up and store them out of the way of children and pets.

When you are using an appliance, make sure that:

  • The plug is firmly pushed into the socket,
  • The cord is not at full stretch
  • The cord is not causing a trip hazard
  • The plug has an appropriate fuse installed (the required ampere rating should be moulded into the plug)
  • The cord is not damaged in any way, and that no wires are exposed at all

If you own a Masterbuilt Smokehouse, follow these tips and tricks to better control the temperature while cooking your favorite meats. I'll give you some tips, but you can read more here https://masterbuilt.pissedconsumer.com/review.html . First, be sure to leave enough space between the sides of the electric smoker and items on the racks. This will ensure proper circulation of heat and smoke. If using pans, place the pan in the center of the wire rack for even cooking. Second, don't overload your Masterbuilt electric smoker. Keep an eye on the capacity of your electric smoker and only consider the capacity it offers. Too much food inside the smoker can obstruct the heating element and grate.
