Electrical Engineer Safety Tips
Electrical engineers work in a variety of environments, from on-site to in the office or lab. If you are an electrical engineer who works predominantly at a desk, make sure that you practice good posture and regular neck stretches to avoid potential long-term issues with your back that sitting can cause.
Electricity has become an absolute necessity in the modern world. When new buildings are built, or old ones are remodeled, people expect the electrical systems be in working order as soon as the building is complete. But, even with all the advances in science and technology electricity remains a dangerous aspect to construction and people’s lives. A single faulty wire has the potential to start fires, cause shock, or even electrocution. Electrical engineers must be diligent in the design of electrical systems to keep people safe from these hazards, but they themselves also must be cautious around electrical elements. By reviewing some basic safety tips, electrical engineers can feel confident that they are doing everything possible to keep themselves safe in their duties.
Basic on-site safety
- Be aware of your surroundings. Construction sites can be dangerous places with many hazards.
- Know the emergency exit routes and what to do in the event of a fire or catastrophe.
- Keep your tools with you at all times, and don’t let anyone but you use them.
- Keep your belongings organized. Don’t let them clutter up walkways or potential emergency exits.
- If you have to carry heavy equipment, use proper lifting techniques. Never lift with your back.
- Use the right ladder for the height you need to reach. Never stand on the top of a ladder.
- Wear a mask if the area is dusty or there are hazardous chemicals around such as lead paint.
- Communicate with those around you. Make sure they know what you are doing, and to stay away if necessary.
- Never come into direct contact with a energized electrical circuit. It is a basic rule, but one to remind yourself of everyday!
- Pretend that all devices or lines are live. Double check to make sure the power has been disconnected each and every time.
- Use tools with non-conducting handles.
- Always cover your hands with insulated gloves.
- Never wear open-toed shoes, and make sure the boots you do use are insulated to prevent transmission of currents.
- Use safety goggles if drilling or chipping into a wall.
- Be on constant watch for moisture. Even condensation or perspiration can be enough to cause a severe problem. If water has spilled and collected on the ground near you, do not continue working with electrical outlets.
- Keep any liquids or materials that are highly flammable away from electrical equipment.
- Don’t smoke near electrical equipment.
- Watch extension cords. Make sure they are not damaged, old, or frayed. Never let them stretch across walkways and become tripping hazards for others.
- Keep ladders, scaffolding, and other conductors of electricity far from power lines.
