Electrical saftey

Metal is a great conductor for electricity

  • Don’t wear metal jewelry or watchbands when working on electrical circuits.
  • Use tools with non-conducting handles.
  • When possible, work on electrical circuits with 1 hand, keeping the other away from conductive materials.

Humans are decent conductors of 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.
  • Never touch anyone’s electrical circuits unless invited to do so.

Water is a decent conductor of electricity

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