Electrical Shock Hazards & Its Effects on Human Body – ELECTRICAL TECHNOLOGY


When working with or nearby electrical installations an electrical shock, arc flash or arc blast can occur and a current can go through the body, due to the following situations:

  • Direct contact with live parts of the installation (exposure to live parts)
  • Contact with parts that normally are not live, but as a consequence of a fault become live accidentally (indirect contact)
  • Existence of potential difference between different points in the ground

The duration of the fault must be limited by the action of protection relays and devices.
