Did you know that electric shocks can be pretty serious business? Unfortunately, this is a fact of life for many of us who work in the electrical industry or around electricity. If you’ve ever experienced an electric shock, you know how uncomfortable and potentially dangerous it can be.
At Starnes Electric, we take electrical safety seriously. That’s why we want to make sure you have the information you need to stay safe from electric shocks. Here’s what you should know about electric shocks, and how to prevent them:
- Electric shocks happen when electricity flows through your body. This usually happens when someone touches a live wire or exposed part of an electrical circuit. The shock can cause serious injury – even death – depending on the voltage and the person’s health.
- The most common way to prevent electric shocks is to turn off power before attempting any electrical work. You should always use appropriate safety gear when working with electricity, such as rubber gloves, non-conductive tools and eyewear.
- Make sure that wiring and outlets are in good condition, and that all exposed wiring is properly covered. This helps prevent accidental contact with live wires, which can lead to electric shocks.
- If you’re experiencing an electric shock, turn off the electricity immediately if possible. Otherwise, move away from the source of the shock as quickly as possible – don’t touch anything metal! Seek medical attention right away if necessary.
