**Electrical Safety

Metal is a great conductor

  • Don’t wear metal jewelry or watchbands when working on electrical circuits” because metal is a great conductor for electricity.
  • “Use tools with non-conducting handles” so conductors like metals, wont conduct the electricity
  • Enclose all electrical contacts and conductors.

People are so-so conductors (they can still conduct electricity).

  • Don’t touch electrical circuits with your fingers.
  • Should someone come into contact with electricity, don’t touch them; shut down the main power.
  • Disconnect the power source before working on electrical circuits and devices.

water is a so-so conductor

  • Never work with electrical circuits with wet hands or on a wet floor.
  • If there is a spill, shut off the main power before doing anything else.
