Electrical

Electricity is an energy that is often abused and misused. A lack of awareness and often a lack of plain common sense result in extremely hazardous practices. To minimise these hazards it is vitally important to follow appliance/tool manufacturer instructions, building codes/regulations regarding wiring and electricity usage. Tamper-proof fuses or circuit breakers (trip switches) must be installed.
