A hairdryer uses 0.2 kWh
Yes, both the sockets and amperage are adaptable between American and Canadian appliances.
It depends on the model, if the hair dryer is a 1500 watt hair dryer, then it uses 1500 watts on high heat. If the hair dryer is a 2000 watt hair dryer, then it uses 2000 wa…tts on high heat. Hair dryers come in all different size wattage, so it depends on the size wattage of the dryer. Most hair dryers are 1500 watts.
A European hairdryer operates on 230V. US power is 110V. The hairdryer will need a high power converter that will be fairly expensive. (110V input to 240V output rated at abou…t 800W) It will be less expensive to buy a new one at Walmart when you get to the US than it will be to buy a converter for the European one.
The Health & Safety at Work Act is now a part of modern lives. With the recent press and half a brain politions selling Health & Safety as a joke. It's amazing how quickly swa…yed the public are by a few lies and twists. Before Health & Safety arrived in Parliment children as young as six years old worked hard hours for little or no pay. Children sometimes worked up to 19 hours a day, with a one-hour total break. It is the element of the workplace we love to hate. But if someone we love has an accident we would want to know who was responsible and in this day are likely to sue for damages too! About 170 people or more will die in the UK next year. They will be killed at work. 1.2 million have work related illness today. Attitudes toward this subject need to change!

Wear eye protection. Never touch the element or tip of the soldering iron. They are very hot (about 400°C) and will give you a nasty burn. Take great care to avoid touchin…g the mains flex with the tip of the iron. The iron should have a heatproof flex for extra protection. An ordinary plastic flex will melt immediately if touched by a hot iron and there is a serious risk of burns and electric shock. Always return the soldering iron to its stand when not in use. Never put it down on your workbench, even for a moment! Work in a well-ventilated area. The smoke formed as you melt solder is mostly from the flux and quite irritating. Avoid breathing it by keeping you head to the side of, not above, your work. Wash your hands after using solder. Solder contains lead which is a poisonous metal.

H&S I would say if you can manage to hurt yourself with a simple fax machine, you probably deserved it. These days nothing is free from the H&S squad, here a…re the main H&S risks I suspect they would state: Danger from electrical contact Danger of loose clothing or hair being caught in fax mechanism Add any other ridiculous danger you can think of and they too would probably be covered. E.G Danger from a drunken chipmunk gnawing through the power cable, being electrocuted, falling into a wastebin, spontaneously combusting and setting the bin/building/world on fire.
