Tell your employees to follow these three rules for electrical safety

 
Rule #1: Turn off the main electrical circuit 
Before your employees do any work with live electrical circuits, they must shut them off at the main circuit board. 
 
Rules #2: Put on your electrical safety wear
Before your employees start their work on any electrical circuit, they must wear thick gloves that won't conduct the current. 
 
They also need a protective mask in case of any sparks, as well as flameproof clothing that won't catch fire because of the sparks.
 
Rule #3: Use the correct equipment
Only use the equipment that's meant for work on electrical circuits. If they use the wrong tools, it could damage the circuit and cause electrical faults. 
 
These three rules will help your employees work safely with electricity so put them in your toolbox talk today.
