Garage Safety: Lighting

 

Garage Safety Lighting

Shine the Light On Safety

Garages are notoriously poorly lit and therefore underutilized and unsafe. However, by following the following tips there are simple ways to create a clean, safe garage:

  1. Make sure garage and stairwells are well lit.
  2. Use maximum safe wattage in light fixtures. (maximum wattage is typically posted inside the light fixtures.)
  3. Avoid use of naked bulbs. Shield bulbs used near work areas to reduce the risk of breakage and fire.
