Many men use electric shavers to achieve a clean shave. If you are using an electric shaver, or any other appliance in the bathroom, it’s important to take steps to avoid injury.
How to avoid injury when using an electric shaver
When you’re using an electric shaver, you want to get the job done quickly with minimal hassle, but don’t ignore safety considerations. Make sure you charge the razor using suitable power points and avoid using electrical items near running water. If you are shaving in the bathroom, turn the taps off and keep a tight grip on the shaver. Although some bathrooms are fitted with specially designed charging points, this is not always the case, and you’ll need to charge your razor in a different room.
When you’re shaving, focus on what you’re doing, and move the shaver around to cover the whole area you want to trim. If you go over the same patch a number of times, you’re likely to cause irritation, and you may end up with an uneven finish. If you’ve got a new razor, don’t just assume that it works in the same way as your old shaver. Read the instructions carefully first.
Electricity and water don’t mix, so avoid the bathroom if you’re using appliances that are attached to the mains. If you are using something and you come into contact with water, there is a risk of electrical injuries.
Is it possible to claim for injuries caused by an electric razor?
Have you sustained injuries after using an electric razor or any other bathroom appliances? If you failed to use the appliance correctly, you wouldn’t be able to claim bathroom accident compensation, as you would be liable for your injuries. However, if you were injured as result of using a faulty appliance, such as a shaver, you could be eligible for faulty product compensation.
