Electrical Safety Around Water

Boat Lifts and Electrical Safety

In York County, we are fortunate to have Lake Wylie as a recreational water source. Along with living on the lake or owning a boat, we have an added responsibility to make sure that the docks, marinas, and boat lifts that we use are wired appropriately and in a manner that provides safety against accidental electrocution.

There are numerous scenarios where carelessness and/or improper electrical installation can lead to electrical shock or electrocution. Click here to read some of the most common tips regarding of electrical installation safety. The most important thing to keep in mind is that electrical installations and inspections should be conducted by a licensed electrician. In so many incidents, improper installation, lack of safety measures, or the absence of safety inspections has led to avoidable tragedies.

Environments of Caution

  • Marinas
  • Boat Lifts
  • Swimming Pools 
  • Spas


Swimming pools and electrical hazardsSwimming pools and spas provide an environment for additional safety concerns. Recently a local man died while trying to rescue his granddaughter from what appeared to be electrical shock from the pool's railing.



Residential Electrical Inspections

Boat Dock WiringFor residents living on the lake or who have pools with nearby electrical systems and outlets, inspections are crucial. Not only is the proximity to water a hazard, but the wear and tear to wiring and components from being outdoors makes deterioration inevitable. The picture to the left depicts some exposed wiring next to a docked boat.
