  • Electrical safety in the industrial work environment is imperative. Workers like electricians and engineers are exposed to serious electrical hazards when they are working on or near energised electrical equipment or high voltage installations.

  • The company reports that: Current procedures for verifying the safe use of electrical panels are subject to human error and time consuming. It is also necessary for an operator wearing a protective suit to first open a panel in an unknown state in order to test it, placing workers at significant risk of injury or death. While voltage indicators can confirm certain known states where an electrical panel is known not to be safe, they do not confirm that a panel is certainly safe from hazards such as residual current.
