We rely on electricity, but sometimes underestimate its capability of causing injury. Even household current ( volts) can stop your heart. UW personnel need to be aware of the hazards electricity poses, such as shock, fire and explosion, and either eliminate or control those hazards.

Electrical shock happens when current passes through the body. Wall outlets are designed to provide electricity for only 2 appliances at the same time. Overloading them is a fire hazard. Use only 1 plug per outlet. Contact Facilities Management to discuss installation of more outlets if needed.

Report broken or uncovered outlets. Replace cracked or damaged cords — do not tape over them. 2 | Electrical: Common Hazards CM (12/11) CIRCUIT BREAKERS A circuit breaker is a protective device designed to protect the circuit and equipment when it becomes overloaded as a result of too many appliances or equipment on the circuit, as well as when a short develops in a Size: KB.

Electrical fires are Class C fires; however, the term “electrical fire” is something of a misnomer, as it is the combustible insulation that burns, rather than the conductor or the electrons.

Electrical Fire Safety Checklist Cords Is any cord cracked, frayed, or otherwise damaged. c YES: Do not use damaged cords. Replace the cord or the equipment. Damaged cords may have exposed wires that can be a fire and shock hazard. Are any cords pinched by furniture or in doors/windows.

Electrical shocks have caused many firefighter deaths. A properly fused electrical circuit is one of your best protections against circuit overload and potential fire. Should a fuse blow a second time after it is replaced, it is telling you that there is a problem with the equipment or its wiring.

Resist the temptation to use a larger size fuse to "cure" the problem. This can create a serious fire. Static electricity hazards Under certain conditions, liquids, solid objects and people can become charged with static electricity.

If these charges cannot move or flow to ground, the static charges continue to accumulate, and will eventually develop enough energy to jump as a spark to another nearby object. If flammable gasFile Size: KB. Fire hazard. (loose electrical plug + sparks). Favorite Answer.

State Plans are required to have standards and enforcement programs that are at least as effective as OSHA's and may have different or more stringent requirements.

An additional hazard of a Class C fire is the potential for electric shock while fighting the fire. If possi- but if the electricity is not turned off, the fire may rekindle.
