COURSE: ELECTRICAL HIGH VOLTAGE SAFETY
COURSE CODE: EHVS 200
The majority of us use electricity every day on the job and this familiarity can create a false sense of security. Let us bear in mind that electricity is always a potential source of danger and it claims lives whenever we are ignorant. The thumb rule is; consider all electrical wires and equipment to be hot/ live until they are tested and proven otherwise. Science has evolved and today we know enough about electricity and its effects on human body. Yet getting injured at work or losing lives due to electricity in today’s industrial world does not speak high about an organization’s attitude towards safety. Electricity is a good servant and a bad master; also well known for its destructive properties like arc, fire and explosion leading to colossal damage.
