What is electrical engineering safety
Electrical engineering safety relates to:
- Prevention of electric shock and burns, (electrocution, death or injury as a result of a shock, radiation burns, flash burns, burning particles and plasma).
- Prevention of electrical arcing and surface temperatures that have sufficient energy to ignite gas and/or dust.
- Prevention of fires caused by the malfunction of electrical equipment.
- Prevention of injury and death from unintended operation, failure to stop or failure to operate, of electrically powered and electrically controlled equipment.
- Use of electrical technology to provide safeguards and monitoring against non-electrical hazards.
