Electricity safety in Vietnam

Project name:

Electricity safety in Vietnam   

Project location: 

Vietnam   

Every year on Values Day, we celebrate our values and recognize how we put safety first. AES Mong Duong has implemented an educational program on electricity safety that includes presentations and games to provide helpful information and increase awareness for the people in the local Cam Hai commune.  

In its first year, the educational program was combined with a home electric system renovation for fifty low-income households and nine public facilities where inspections and assessment had been carefully done by AES’ technicians one month prior to Values Day. All unqualified sockets, electric lines, light bulbs and appliances with a high-risk of electric shock were replaced or reinforced to ensure the safety of our community members. 

Impact:

In total, 100 households in need and 9 public facilities have been supported

Partners:

AES employee volunteers and People’s Committee of Cam Hai Commune
