Electricity Construction

 

 

Many electric-related accidents and injuries are caused by water existing in and around the construction site where electrical equipments are used and being worked on. The biggest thing you can do to avoid electric shock and electric injury is to prevent water from making contact with electrical equipments and electrical lines.

In general, construction workers should take extreme caution at all times whenever they are dealing with all, if not any type of electrical equipment, such as panels, light fixtures, personal computers, alarms, transformers, fuse boxes, to name a few. In particular, electric equipments that are near water sources. Branchement de spa Electrical Construction workers should take time in knowing and familiarizing themselves with the construction site. Not to mention, pieces of electric equipments and should be able to spot any potential electric hazards on site before starting to work. This stands as a precaution in case any electrical equipment might be damaged during the use of various wet methods of removal.

 

Also remember to reenergize all electrical equipment as much as possible. If there are non-electrical alternatives, use those as much as you can. Portable floodlight systems, vacuum attachments and scrapers that are made out of plastic, rubber or wood instead of metallic materials, are a few examples. When you start working on the electricity, be safety cautious and wear protective gears, that includes insulated rubber boots and insulated rubber gloves.

 

Here are more safety precautions that construction teams are suppose to implement. If there are live power line and cables, it should be covered with hot line covers, and electrical outlets should be tightly sealed. Make sure the wiring, lines, extension wires, outlets and power pickups have a ground fault circuit interrupter. A Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) are outlets that have a test and reset switches that can prevent electric shock or electrocution by monitoring the flow of electricity or circuit through the circuit outlet. For example, there are changes in the electric current, like a cord made contact with water, the GFCI shuts down the flow of electricity immediately. There should be GFCIs that are being used every time there is electricity near a water source, both in construction sites or in your home.

A number of things that needs to be avoided to increase electric-related safety measures within the construction site. One, water and electric do not work good together! Avoid letting water collect on the floor when dealing with electric equipment and lines. Make sure to remove all water before it starts to accumulate. Two, do not string along electric wires and lines on the floor. This should be avoided at all costs, since it is a safety hazard. Third, take caution on damaging the insulated covers and protectors. Lastly, all members and ozen electrique workers of the construction should always assume that all pieces of electrical equipment or any wiring or cables within the site are live wires or energized. There are also safety manuals that comes with your electrical equipments, be sure to read then thoroughly before trying to operate them.
