Excerpt from "Space Heater Safety"
Space heaters are a quick way to heat things up in a drafty office or workspace, but they can increase the risks of fire and electric shock if not used properly. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration does not specifically prohibit use of portable electric heaters, but the safety agency does require that any electrical equipment be used according to the manufacturer’s specifications.
