About this eBook

PREFACE Electricity is essential in modern life, both at home and on the job. Some engineers, electricians, technicians, and workers work with electricity directly. Others work with it indirectly. Electricity has become such a familiar part of our daily life, many of us don t give much thought to how much our work depends on a reliable source of electricity. More importantly, we tend to over look the hazards electricity poses and fail to treat it with the respect it deserves. Electricity has long been recognized as a serious workplace hazard, exposing employees to electric shock, electrocution, burns, fires, and explosions. Managements of Industrial and Electrical Plants and Consumers of electricity tend to neglect safety aspects at the risk personnel. A casual glance at some electrical installation reveals need of essential safety measures such as a fence, a good earthing system, clean insulators, well dressed cables and clean surroundings. With ever-increasing use of electricity by domestic, industrial, commercial, agricultural rural and other consumers, the safety of personnel, plant and equipment is gaining due attention. Electricity is a very safe and easily controllable form of energy only if the installations, plant and equipment are built with adequate safety precautions and users are aware and follow safety rules in every action. Safety Principles, Rules and Acts, Procedures have been documented during the 20th century for use at Project Sites, Plant Sites and in Consumers Premises. Safety Management and Safety precautions are necessary at every stage, design of plant and equipment, manufacture of equipment and components, testing, dispatch, site construction work, Erection testing commissioning , operation and maintenance O and M of electrical plants equipment and casual use of electricity . The risks include Electric shocks, fires and explosions, fall of objects on head, fall of persons from height, flashovers and faults in equipment and machines, etc. Accidents and fires result in injuries, loss of life and loss property.

Management should be committed to safety. Safety should be organized and managed. This book will be found useful for the Students of Final Year Diploma Courses and Post-Diploma Courses on Safety for various disciplines of Engineering. The book forms a single semester course for B.E. courses in Electrical Electronics, Mechanical, Civil, Chemical, Energy and other disciplines. This book will also serve as a course material for training courses for Electrical Supervisors and Electrical
