Electricity is crucial for powering our civilization, but it’s also dangerous. Electricity is a serious workplace hazard, exposing employees to electric shock, burns, fires, and explosions. Electricity flows through conductors such as metals, water, the Earth, and the human body. When electrical tools are working properly, a complete circuit is maintained between the tool and the energy source. With damaged tools, a worker may come in contact with the electricity and become a path for the current.
Employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthful workplace for their employees. They also must provide the training and equipment necessary for workers to stay safe.
Here are a few safe electrical work practices to help avoid accidents and injuries on the job.
