Electricity is a part of our daily grind. We rely on it every day; in our homes and work places. No nation can survive without the power of electricity. A nation’s progress relies in the power of electricity that runs into the veins of our communities.
But when we talk about electrical safety, what comes to your mind?
Avoidance of fire incidence or of being electrocuted?
According to the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP), there has been an increase in the number of fires and deaths for the year 2018 – 16,382 incidents from January 1 to December 11 from 15,848 incidents in 2017.
The BFP noted that the top three causes of fires are faulty electrical connections as the leading cause, followed by lighted cigarette butts and open flames due to torches.
It is indeed important to have a regular electrical inspection in our communities and work places to prevent casualties or serious injuries.
When installing electrical wires, safety should be the primary concern. Looking for a registered electrical practitioner and using quality wire is a must and Philippine Electrical Code (PEC) must be followed at all times. PEC is used as the basis for safeguarding persons, buildings and its contents from hazards that may arise from the use of electricity.
