Eaton collaborates with Electrical Safety Foundation International to build awareness of counterfeit electrical product dangers.
Safety Foundation International (ESFI) to spearhead a public awareness campaign focused on the dangers of counterfeit electrical products that can cause
life-threatening disasters and result in lost productivity for customers and
will focus on the danger of counterfeit electrical products as part of a
broader outreach effort during National Electrical Safety Month (May). Eaton's
goal is to educate key audiences about counterfeit products and the dangers
they pose in residential and industrial settings as well as their adverse
and communities can protect themselves against dangerous and defective
counterfeit electrical products by using only established vendors and
authorized retailers; exercising caution in online transactions; checking for
certification marks; scrutinizing labels and packaging; avoiding products that
lack any identifying branding label or affiliation; avoiding âbargains' that
seem too good to be true; and seeking information online about product recalls.
