2 CIRCUITS & PROTECTIVE DEVICES In most uses, electricity flows in a pathway called a circuit. Circuits typically have a source of electric power, a conductor like copper wire, a load such as a motor or light and a switch. A short circuit is when electricity unexpectedly takes a new path with much less resistance and bypasses the load or switch in a circuit. This can produce a dangerous electrical surge with intense heat. Fuses and circuit breakers are protective devices that stop the flow of electricity when it reaches a dangerously high level. Circuit breakers and fuses help protect equipment and prevent fires, but they wont protect a person from getting shocked. Another important protective device is the ground fault circuit interrupter, which can be located in outlets or in a portable cord. Ground fault circuit interrupters, called GFCIs, detect very small changes in current and almost instantly stop the flow of electricity. Because they work so quickly and respond to small changes in current, they can protect a person from shock. MEASURING ELECTRICITY One of the most common terms in measuring electricity is voltage, which is the force that moves electrons in the current. 110 volts is found in typical wall outlets and in some industrial equipment and lighting. You may also work around equipment that uses higher voltages such as 240, 277 or 480 volts. voltage circuits such as these can be especially dangerous. High No one should be involved with these circuits unless they are licensed electricians who are qualified to work with high voltage circuits. Watts is a term you see on a variety of electrical devices. Watts tells you how much electricity the device consumes; the higher the watts, the more power it uses. The amount of electrical current is measured in amperes, usually called amps. You should remember that the greatest danger is from the amount of electrical current, the amps. In fact, less than one-tenth of an amp can kill a person. Resistance is the ability of a material or device to restrict or resist the flow of current. measured in Ohms. Insulators have a lot of resistance; conductors have very little resistance. Resistance is TERMS ASSOCIATED WITH THE USE OF ELECTRICITY Ground is an important electrical term. Objects are grounded if they are connected to the earth with a conductor. For example, a barn is grounded when a lightning rod on top of the barn is connected to the ground by a metal cable. If lightning hits the rod, the electric current will go through the cable and into the ground without damaging the barn. Grounded tools and equipment are also connected to the earth with a conductor. Thats the purpose of the ground prong on a cord. The ground prong is connected to a separate grounding wire inside the cord. If there were a short circuit, the surge of electricity would flow safely through the ground wire and into the earth rather than into a person or equipment.

5 RESPONDING TO AN ELECTRICAL INJURY Knowing what to do and what not to do if you come across an electrical mishap can mean the difference between life and death, for the injured person and for yourself. For your own safety, dont rush into the situation. You could be injured or killed by electric current, fires, or hazardous debris. How you respond depends on whether the person is still being shocked. If the person is no longer being shocked, call for emergency medical help immediately. If you cant, get someone else to call; fast medical attention can make the difference between life and death. If the person is still being shocked, youre faced with additional hazards. Shock can cause a person to involuntarily hold onto the electrical sources. You may be tempted to grab the person and pull them away, but dont do it! Dont touch them; you could get shocked too. If you can, quickly shut off the power and call for emergency medical help. If you cant turn off the power, use a dry, clean, nonconductive object like a piece of plastic pipe to push the person away; then call for help. If you are the person being shocked and you cant let go, let your knees collapse. The weight of your body can pull you away from the source of shock. Try to calm the person and keep them still until medical help arrives. Dont give the person water because it could cause a stroke. If the person is bleeding, dont touch the blood.

6 PREPARE FOR THE SAFETY MEETING OR TRAINING SESSION Review each section of this Leader's Guide as well as the videotape. Here are a few suggestions for using the program: Make everyone aware of the importance the company places on health and safety and how each person must be an active member of the safety team. Introduce the videotape program. Play the videotape without interruption. Review the program content by presenting the information in the program outline. Copy the review questions included in this Leader's Guide and ask each participant to complete them. Copy the attendance record as needed and have each participant sign the form. Maintain the attendance record and each participant's test paper as written documentation of the training performed. Here are some suggestions for preparing your videotape equipment and the room or area you use: Check the room or area for quietness, adequate ventilation and temperature, lighting and unobstructed access. Check the seating arrangement and the audiovisual equipment to ensure that all participants will be able to see and hear the videotape program. Place or secure extension cords to prevent them from becoming a tripping hazard. CONDUCTING THE PRESENTATION Begin the meeting by welcoming the participants. Introduce yourself and give each person the opportunity to become acquainted if there are new people joining the training session. Explain that the primary purpose of the program is show viewers the consequences of unsafe acts around electrical equipment while demonstrating the basic electrical safe work practices that will keep them safe on the job. Introduce the videotape program. Play the videotape without interruption. Review the program content by presenting the information in the program outline. Lead discussions specific equipment and job duties at your facility that present electrical hazards and the steps employees must take to protect themselves from them. Use the review questions to check how well the participants understood the information. After watching the videotape program, the viewer will be able to explain the following: Common electrical terms and components such as conductors, insulators, circuits, grounding, shock alternating current, direct current and static electricity; How electricity is measured and the characteristics of these measurements; Safe work practices designed to keep employees safe when working near electrical equipment; Electrical hazards that workers must always be aware of to prevent deaths and injuries; How to respond to an electrical injury.
