Electricity constitutes one of the major sources of ignition for fire accidents and explosions. Over 20% of fire world wide and 40% fire in India are due to faulty electric circuits. Besides equipment damage and property loss, electrical hazards also include injuries and fatalities to personnel due to electric shock. Electricity having become an indispensable part of our life, electrical risks are to be managed effectively.
Timely inspection and preventive maintenance of electrical equipment and its connected systems will go a long way in ensuring safer operations, for a longer period of time, of the electrical installations.
