My job often entails working on live equipment when there is no alternative.
a/ I have been trained to do so safely and go through periodic assessment.
b/ When we have to do this we ensure all possible safety devices are in place and working correctly.
c/ It is always done with a second person present who knows the procedure.
But it's perfectly OK for the sub-human violent thugs on the General Discussion forum to call for, and glory in, the creation of dead bodies, often by cruel and disgusting ways, isn't it.Moderator 11 said:Photos of dead bodies are not encouraged on this site.
2. The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 (EAW Regulations) make it quite clear that no-one, however well qualified should be put at risk from electricity. If live working is really necessary. suitable precautions must be taken to prevent injury. It is often necessary to test for the presence of voltage or to measure voltage on power circuits. motors, switchboards, cable terminations etc. Electricians need to avoid the dangers of electric shock and burns by their training, technical knowledge and skill, ie their competence to work safely. combined with their use of safe test equipment.
