Table Of Contents: Electrical Safety

1. Electrical Safety at Home
Safety should always be kept in mind while working with electricity. Use dry hands while using electrical appliances because water conducts electricity. Keep water away from plugs and electric cords. Standing water near electric tools can be very dangerous. Make sure your home is equipped with fuses and circuit breakers that break the electrical current if too much current starts to flow.
2. Lightning and Power Lines
Lightning is a powerful, yet dangerous, form of electricity. If you are caught outside in a lightning storm, stay away from power lines as well as tall trees and structures. Power lines carry high voltage electricity. If these lines are damaged or fall down during a storm, they can potentially cause serious injury. Never touch a downed electric wire.
