Earthing or grounding is the process of transferring the immediate discharge of electricity directly to the earth plate, by means of low resistance electrical cables or wires. Earthing really is one of the most important aspects of electric networks, since it makes the most readily available and dangerous source of power much safer to […]
Any electrical construction project or job site using electrical equipment faces a risk of damage, injury and even fatalities. Dangerous situations can escalate if they aren’t curbed in time, particularly in high-risk applications such as mining, which is considered the most risky setting for using electrical power. Here’s why:
The electrical fatality rate in […]
