How to prevent electrocution is covered in this program. Electricity is measured in units of energy called watts. Watts is defined as the amount of power an appliance uses when operated at its maximum capacity for one hour. Within the home or work, it is typical to have conductors covered with an insulator such as rubber-covered electric cord; however this does not guarantee safety. The electricity we use every day is generated in power plants by converting resources such as water, sun, coal, oil, natural gas and wind into electrical power. Topics in this program covers electricity hazard, unsafe acts and basic safe work practices. Electricity is an integral part of today's modern world and sometimes it is easy to forget just how dangerous it can be. The National Safety Council estimates 600 people die every year in the U.S. of electrical causes. Most of the accidents involve low voltage (600 volts or less) which could have been easily prevented. This safety is designed to help inform you how you can prevent electrocution.
