How to avoid electrical fatal shocks?
Always keep in mind that if electricity is passed through our brain or upper portion of body where hearts & lungs are affected the electrical shock is likely to be fatal. To avoid electrical shocks and fatal shocks pl do following: 1. Don't touch electrical device or leaky cable with wet hands
2. Before doing any electrical job (even ironing) use clear hill chappal/shoe or stand on any insulator like rubber mat etc. 3. Always presume that any metalic body or cabinet or exposed metal part of an electrical device may give you shock and keep you ready with preventive measure as told above. 4. Switch off device and remove power cable wherever possible before opening/trouble shooting of electrical gadget. 4. The most important: if anybody gets a shock don't touch him/her with your hands. Just use your leg to disconnect him from electrical system. Otherwise electricity will pass through your heart making you lethal shock. 5. As neutral of a power plant is put into earth, the supply line has a tendency to close the circuit to earth through a load (conductor). Don't give any chance to make that 'load' with your body. So never touch live wire or insulate your body to stpo flow of electricity to the ground/earth and remember not to allow passing of electricity through upper part of body. 6. Don't do any electrical job after taking bath. Wet body gets very low resistance and helps in passing high amount of current during contact with live wire. Higher current through body means more danger for life. These small tips will protect you & your family members from any lethal shock. Pl teach this others also.
