  • Lower the thermostat on your water heater to 120°F

  • Make sure that windows and doors are closed when heating or cooling your home

  • Check the insulation in your attic, exterior and basement walls, ceilings, floors, and crawl spaces

  • Check for air leaks around your walls, ceilings, windows, doors, lighting and plumbing fixtures, switches, and electrical outlets

  • Make sure your appliances and heating and cooling systems are properly maintained

  • Use sensors, dimmers, or timers to reduce lighting use

  • Set your programmable thermostat as low as is comfortable in the winter and as high as is comfortable in the summer

  • Clean or replace filters on furnaces and air conditioners once a month or as recommended

  • Clean warm-air registers, baseboard heaters, and radiators as needed; make sure they’re not blocked by furniture, carpeting, or drapes

  • Eliminate trapped air from Hot-Water radiators once or twice a season

  • Place heat-resistant radiator reflectors between exterior walls and the radiators

  • Check your ducts for air leaks. First, look for sections that should be joined but have separated and then look for obvious holes

  • Use mastic, butyl tape, foil tape, or other heat-approved tapes to seal your ducts

  • Use appropriate written operating procedure to start up or shut down equipment or installations

  • Do not carry out work if you do not have the right tools for the job and the environment

  • Do not access installations and perform work without wearing general or task-specific personal protective equipment

  • Do not walk under a load while lifting is taking place

  • Do not perform work without checking that the power and product source supply has been rendered inoperative.

  • Do not enter a confined space until isolation has been verified and the atmosphere checked.

  • Do not work at heights without a safety harness when there is no collective protective equipment

  • Report unsafe or hazards conditions

  • Learn what to do and where to get help in an emergency

  • Keep a supportive eye on your co-workers, especially if they are new

  • Wear nonskid shoes when you work in kitchens, outdoors, or any other place where you will commonly be walking on slippery surfaces

  • Never climb on shelving units or storage units to get things. Use only approved ladders

  • Never lean on railings, even if they look solid. They could be improperly secured, and you could fall

  • Never jerk your body around when lifting. You may feel fine after doing this once, but repeated occurrences can easily lead to injury in even the healthiest workers

  • Know where all the fire extinguishers are throughout your worksite and know how to use them

  • Avoid the use of so-called "power strips" whenever possible. They are often prone to overuse and can start a fire if too many appliances are plugged into them
