‘Electric’ Attitude

Further to the overall safety culture discussed in another of our blogs, the attitude of workers and management to outages can play a significant part in electrical incidents and electrocutions.

Many electricians think that asking for an outage is out of the question but an incident could cause a significantly longer outage, especially if the switchboard is ‘blown up.’ An electrician’s attitude may lead him/her to take the risk of working live, perhaps by tightening a loose screw, replacing a miniature circuit breaker or replacing a light fitting live.

NOTHING IS WORTH THE RISK OF WORKING LIVE.

An outage can be arranged when it least disrupts the client and/or business. Yes, it might take a little longer to get the job done but better to go home at the end of the day.
