Electrical safety in an organisation:
Safety in the workplace is the number one priority for employers and employees alike. It is especially essential for those who install and service electrical systems.
Electricity is safe to use but could become dangerous in careless hands. It may cause fire, damage, and fatal or non-fatal accidents to personnel unless appropriate precautions are taken.
These dangerous effects of electricity can be avoided by regular electrical safety audit, using good quality equipment, proper wiring, installation, efficient maintenance as well as upkeep of protective devices.
In large industries of power systems or other electrical installations, it is not always feasible for the engineers & supervisors to explain at length and as often as necessary, all aspects of safety precautions to every employee nor to train them against all possible hazards within a short span of period.
