How to Cope with Electrical Injuries

Situation 1:

Cardiac arrest. Heart action may stop if control centres of the heart are paralyzed.

Action:

Start cardiopulmonary resuscitation immediately.

Situation 2:

Ventricular fibrillation. This condition is more likely to be caused by a shock of relatively low voltage. The heart muscles lose the rhythm and throw the heart into spasms.

Action:

Start cardiopulmonary resuscitation immediately.

Situation 3:

Breathing stops. Electric shock often causes breathing to stop.

Action:

Start artificial respiration immediately and monitor the pulse to ensure that blood is circulating. If a flow of oxygen to the lungs can be maintained by artificial respiration until the paralysis wears off, normal breathing will usually begin again.

Situation 4:

Electrical burns. Current passing through the body generates heat and may cause blisters on the skin. If the current is strong enough, it may destroy body tissue and result in severe electrical burns. The outward appearance of electrical burns may not seem serious, but they are often very deep and are slow to heal.

Action:

Standard emergency procedure for burns. Prompt medical attention is required to prevent infection. Examine the victim for an exit burn as well as an entry burn.
Involuntary Muscular Reaction

Involuntary muscular reaction is an effect of electric shock that has been experienced by everyone who has made accidental contact with an electric circuit.

Even household currents may cause the victim to react so he or she is unable to let go and clear himself or herself of the contact.
If the current is strong enough, this involuntary muscular reaction can be sufficiently violent to cause serious damage to muscles and bones. In addition to freezing the victim to an energized conductor, involuntary muscular reaction may cause a victim to jump or fall which could result in a more serious injury.

Electrical Safety Tips

Avoid overloading your home’s electrical circuits by using octopus plugs and having too many things plugged into one outlet.
Use high-quality surge protectors for expensive electronics to prevent electrical fires and damage to the equipment.
When disconnecting an electrical cord, pull from the plug, not the cord itself.
Do not use space heaters in rooms where children or pets are unsupervised.
Turn off the space heater and unplug it when not in use.
Make sure space heaters are at least 3 feet away from any combustible materials such as clothing, draperies, rugs, and bedding.
Always follow manufacturers’ instructions to avoid electrical hazards and prevent injuries.
Replace worn or old heating pads or electric blankets. These usually have a lifespan of no more than 10 years. Look for any dark, charred or frayed spots or damaged cords.
Never use heating appliances, such as heating pads, electric blankets and space heaters while sleeping.
Never allow pets to sleep on an electric blanket or place anything on top of it. It can cause the blanket to overheat.
If you are traveling for the holidays or vacation, make sure that all heat generating electrical equipment is unplugged before you leave.
Always match the power requirements of your decorations with the amperage rates of the extension cords you may be using. Make sure the cord is rated at least 20% higher than the connected loads.
Turn off indoor and outdoor decorations before you leave home or go to sleep.
When the power goes out, turn off any major appliances. Larger appliances left on can cause an over-load.
Always keep a good supply of flashlights, batteries, and other such supplies in case of a power outage or emergency.
Remember, while winter is the most common time of year for home fires, most are preventable. Share these tips and set safety guidelines in your home. Do not attempt to fix electrical problems in your home on your home. This can lead to accidents, injuries and electrical fires. Electrical fires can start suddenly and in areas that are out of site. Regularly check your smoke detectors and change the batteries as needed.

If you suspect any electrical problems in your house, contact the experts at Pyramid Electric immediately.❗️❗️❗️We are the home services company you know you can always count on! Call today at (414)461-9108 to schedule an estimate.

Hazard #2: Damaged Tools and Equipment
Exposure to damaged electrical tools and equipment can be very dangerous. Do not fix anything unless you are qualified to do so. Thoroughly check for cracks, cuts or abrasions on cables, wires and cords. In case of any defects, have them repaired or replaced. Lock Out Tag Out (LOTO) procedures should be performed at all times before commencing electrical maintenance and repairs. LOTO procedures are there to protect all workers on a worksite.

01/02/2019

Pyramid Tip Of The Day Regarding Electrical Hazards :
Hazard #1: Overhead Power Lines
Overhead powered and energized electrical lines have high voltages which can cause major burns and electrocution to workers. Remember to maintain a minimum distance of 10 feet from overhead power lines and nearby equipment. Conduct site surveys to ensure that nothing is stored under overhead power lines. Also, safety barriers and signs must be installed to warn nearby non-electrical workers of the hazards present in the area.

When installing or using your electrical system, there is always the chance of shock. Now there will be some Home Owners who are comfortable with basic wiring practices; however, unless you're absolutely qualified for system installation, Pyramid recommends you leave the installation of your home's electrical system to licensed electricians.

Not only will a licensed electrician make sure your electrical system meets with all required safety codes, they can also oversee the installation of common safety products. For example, one of the most common items added to your electrical system is a ground fault circuit interrupter -- or GFCIs for short.

By installing a ground fault circuit interruptor -- or ground fault circuit breakers -- you can protect areas that may be moist, such as bathrooms and kitchens. A ground fault interruptor is an electrical device designed to protect you from serious injury due to shock.

Pyramid Tip Of The Day:
Listen to your breaker.
A breaker that trips immediately after it's reset is telling you that there's an electrical problem. Sure, sometimes the breaker itself is to blame, and in some cases there may just be too large an electrical load operating on that circuit. But it's more likely that the breaker is tripping because there's a severe electrical problem. Keep pressing that breaker, and you're likely to cause a fire.In that case please call 911 if this happens!!

Pyramid Electric Tip For The Winter :
Keep anything flammable away from the space heater front, including paper, drapes, pillows, blankets.
Supervise children around save heaters. Space heaters can be a burn or shock hazard.
Make sure the space heater plug is in good shape. A beaten-up plug can start fires.
Do not run cords underneath area rugs. This can start a fire.

How many outlets can be on a 20 amp circuit?

I'm ask so many times how many outlets and or lights can I put on a 15 amp or 20 amp breaker. Well NEC code does not have it listed that way. By rule of thumb you would stick with 8 to 10 outlets and or lights per breaker. Now this is of course they are 120 volts 60mhz (USA or Canada).

09/14/2018

When replacing a switch, light fixture, or outlet receptacle, make sure not to install a device that is rated for more amperage than the circuit carries. This is especially important when replacing receptacles. A receptacle rated for 20-amps has a unique prong shape in which one of the vertical slots has a T shape. This shape allows 20-amp appliances, which have a matching T-shaped prong, to be inserted. Installing such a receptacle on a 15-amp circuit makes it possible to possibly overload the circuit if you plug such a 20-amp appliance into it.

Note, however, that there is no danger to installing 15-amp receptacles in 20-amp circuits since it is perfectly fine when a plug-in device draws less power than the circuit amperage. In fact, it is quite normal for 20-amp general-use circuits to be wired with 15-amp receptacles.

In your home—in everyone’s homes, in fact—the seat of electrical power takes an unassuming form. Concealed by a nondescript metal door, the breaker box doesn’t look very impressive, but it’s the reason you can turn on the lights, the blender, the air conditioning, and the TV. The breaker box, or service panel, operates as a central relay point: It takes power from the street, then feeds that power to the different electrical outlets and hard-wired appliances throughout your residence.

Most people open the breaker box only when there’s a problem—for example, when a circuit needs to be restored after tripping. And that’s the way it should be. Homeowners are wise to be hands-off with electrical elements, especially those they don’t understand. Make no mistake: The breaker box is dangerous. Hire a licensed electrician if you think the panel needs attention.,call Pyramid Electric Company Today !!

Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI)
Since the 1970s, ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) have saved thousands of lives and have helped cut the number of home electrocutions in half.

GFCIs are electrical safety devices that trip electrical circuits when they detect ground faults or leakage currents. A person who becomes part of a path for leakage current will be severely shocked or electrocuted. These outlets prevent deadly shock by quickly shutting off power to the circuit if the electricity flowing into the circuit differs by even a slight amount from that returning.

A GFCI should be used in any indoor or outdoor area where water may come into contact with electrical products. The National Electrical Code currently requires that GFCIs be used in all kitchens, bathrooms, garages, and outdoors.

This morning 2 men in a white truck came to our place staring that the State sent them to put some electrical panel box cover in our place. No papers, nothing. Nothing signed. Just wanted to come in. We texted our landlord and never got a text back as he was at work and lives here upstairs. After about 10 minutes not doing anything they left and said they needed the right panels... which, wouldnt you have it before coming? My landloard informed us that he does not know anything about this. State cannot send anyone to your house with no papers, which we were not shown. So either someone is using your name to get into peoples places or your practices needs to be better and bring the right paperwork. Because we will NOT be letting anyone in without the right paperwork.
Just wanted to thank Kathy for her wonderful service, and Joe was a pro and found the short and fixed it ASAP... This company was given to me by Home Warrenty, and we were very pleased and will be using them in the furture for own other rentals and home.. Thanks again
