Though electricity is extremely dangerous, it is necessary in today’s world, and we come into contact with it every day. The frequency of our exposure to electricity and the gravity of harm it can cause make fatal accidents a certainty. Electricity has a devastating impact on the human body and can cause multiple system failure and long-term disability.
Because electricity is so dangerous and so common, there are strict guidelines for people and companies that deal with electricity. Overhead power lines must be identified. On construction sites, electricity needs to be carefully monitored and controlled. Appliances need to be carefully grounded to avoid accidental shocks.
