Electrical Safety tips:

Electrical emergencies comprise of two outcomes, fires and electric shocks. The safety plan for electrical fires is basically similar to the one mentioned above.

Here are a few tips for electrical emergencies.

As soon as you become aware of an electrical emergency, call 911 to call for an ambulance and fire engine, if needed. Also notify the authorities so they can get help.

For electrical fire, a special extinguisher is usually installed in offices and buildings. When you are sure that the source of the fire is electrical, use that extinguisher to put it off. If you unsure of the cause of fire, you must leave it to the firefighters to do their job.

In case your colleague has suffered an electric shock and has fallen to the ground, stay away from him/her until you break the circuit. If you don't know where the switch is, you can use any dry wooden piece to remove any electric wires that are attached to the victim.

Once you get the victim away from the electric source, use your first aid skills to administer the needed immediate treatment. Usually an electric shock victim requires oxygen to bring his/her breathing back to normal after treatment is given.

These were some of the safety tips you will learn during a fire and electrical safety training. There are many more points involved in fire and electrical emergencies, but these are the basic things you must remember so that you can save yourself and the people around you. This training is very useful and everyone must attend it.
