It’s hard to imagine life without electricity. Heating, cooling, lighting, and
refrigeration are just a few of its common uses. But electricity can be
dangerous. To protect your family and yourself, learn the basic rules for
electrical safety.

Working with electricity can be dangerous. Engineers, linemen, electricians, and others work with electricity directly, including overhead lines, cable harnesses, and circuit assemblies. Office workers and salespeople work with electricity indirectly and may also be exposed to electrical hazards.

Electricity can burn, shock, or even kill you. When you are shocked, your muscles can contract violently. If you are on a high ladder, you might fall. If you are using equipment such as a chain saw, a shock could make you drop it, injuring yourself or someone else.

When electric equipment is not turned off after use, the next person to use it might not be prepared for the power to be on and could be shocked or injured.
