|Electrical equipment can cause serious shock and burn injuries if improperly used or maintained.
If a part of the body comes in contact with an exposed electrical circuit, a shock will occur. The electrical current will enter the body at one point and leave at another. Electricity passing through the body can cause great pain, burns, destruction of tissue, nerves, and muscles. This can be life altering and ending. The following are General Best Practices for Electrical Safety:

|When a person is injured on the job, everyone suffers. The injured person may feel pain, embarrassment, and fear, and generally has his/her whole routine disturbed. Co-workers must fill in to try to make up for the absence, and the district loses the talent of a person who probably knows how to do that particular job better than anyone else.Throughout the district we have many mechanical guards, safety rails, items of personal protective equipment, etc., but the fact remains that most accidents are caused by unsafe acts – not faulty equipment. To help you avoid being hurt, it is important that you follow these rules:
Climb on proper ladders or stepstools only, not on chairs or shelves.
Stacked materials must be stable. Keep in mind the constant possibility of earthquakes. Keep heavy items on lower shelves.
All employees must sign the Acknowledgment Page – General Safety Rules. This acknowledgment page will be added to your personnel file to document that you are aware of and understand our rules in regard to safety.
|Here are additional safety “tip” flyers; please feel free to print and post them at your sites.|
