Technology, Training Offer a Defense Against Electrical Injuries

We are winning the war on electrical safety, but we continue to lose a lot of battles. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, fatal electrical injuries have fallen by almost 60% in the last two decades. At the same time, non-fatal electrical injuries rates haven’t fallen much. On average, there are about five electrical safety or arc flash incidents every day in the U.S.

GFCIs an Integrated Approach to Electrical Safety

Ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) are used in wet and hazardous settings and have proven to be a life-saving technology. A GFCI disconnects a circuit when it detects that the electrical current is not balanced between the energized conductor and the return neutral conductor. An imbalance can indicate current leakage through the body of a grounded person who accidentally contacts the energized part of the circuit. GFCI devices disconnect quickly enough to prevent injury.
