Basic Principles of Electricity™

Basic Electrical Safety

This program explains the basic principles of electrical energy in an easy-to-understand, non-technical way. If electricity escapes the path of its intended circuits, the results can be shock, burns, respiratory failure, asphyxiation, internal bleeding and cardiac arrest to the human body, as well as physical damage to surrounding property.

Additional Information

Trainer Comments: Graphics and live vignettes illustrate the concepts of voltage, resistance, amperage, grounding, bonding, the effects of electrical current on the body including resulting injuries, and how safety devices like fuses, circuit breakers, and ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) work to protect against unexpected heat and energy flow. There is also a discussion of the use of switches to control electric current and the important differences between “conductors” and “insulators.”
