Electrical Hazards
Can be a one of them scary moment when a person doesn’t look or expected their equipment before plugging into a wall outlet . Electrical cords and other equipment that uses AMP or an outlet is a incent warning, with a tag that indicates a warning that’s Label ‘Electrical Hazards’ and everyone should be careful and inspect the equipment before use just like a in chemistry Lab or any lab
Some people don’t understand what an AMP is; AMP is short for Ampere which means a electrical current. And everything that’s plug in a wall outlet has a set of number of AMP (or Ampere) being use to make equipment such as computer, Microwave, Dryers, Fridge ect. To operate for electrical purpose. What is the danger of electrical shock? The severity and effects of an electrical shock depend on a number of factors, such as the pathway through the body, the amount of current, the length of time of the exposure, and whether the skin is wet or dry. Water is a great conductor of electricity, allowing current to flow more easily in wet conditions and through wet skin. The effect of the shock may range from a slight tingle to severe burns to cardiac arrest. The chart can be found anywhere to show the general relationship between the degree of injury and amount of current for a 60-cycle hand-to-foot path of one second's duration of shock. While reading this chart, keep in mind that most electrical circuits can provide, under normal conditions, up to 20,000 milliamperes of current
