Safety Basics of Electrical Grounding
Safety basics of electrical grounding involve making sure all wires and cords are undamaged, checking that all circuits are performing well and none electrical fittings need to be replaced or repaired. Electrical grounding is the process of stabilizing an electrical current in order to limit the variation and volume of a machine's electrical current.
When performing any electrical grounding work, workers should be sure to have a strong understanding of the process of grounding and the type of electrical current that is being worked with. Workers should also keep a first aid kit close by in case of injury. Workers should be aware of common symptoms of serious electricity-related injuries. Because of the high risk of electrical shock, it is also wise to only use non-conductive tools or tools with non-conductive handles and grips. Tools like these can absorb limited amounts of electricity and protect the user from serious harm.
