Electrical work is an essential profession that powers our day to day. They install, maintain and repair electrical systems to ensure that electricity flows smoothly and safely for residences and in commercial use. However, this profession comes with inherent risks such as electrical shocks, fires and other hazardous incidents. That’s why Fluorescent Man Lighting prioritizes safety above all else! 

In this blog, we will delve into the fundamental safety measures that every electrician should follow to protect themselves, their colleagues, and the people they serve. These guidelines are not only essential for preventing accidents but also for maintaining a high standard of professionalism and expertise in the electrical industry. Whether you are a seasoned electrician or an aspiring one, adhering to these safety protocols is crucial for a successful and secure career in this field.

There are 4 fundamental safety measures that every electrician should follow : 

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): 

Wearing PPE at all times is required to act as protection against electrical hazards and potential accidents. Examples of PPE are goggles, gloves and flame resistant clothing. PPE is a barrier that reduces the risk of electrical shocks, burns and injuries. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) states that wearing proper PPE reduces electrical injuries by 70%. 

Lockout/Tagout Procedure: 

Lockout and tagout procedures ensure that circuits are de-energized and isolated. This ensures that machinery is properly shut down and isolated from energy sources. With this procedure, electricians are safeguarded from voltage exposure during maintenance or repairs. A study published in the Journal of Safety and Research found that strictly following this procedure prevented 120 fatalities and 50,000 annually. 

Proper Training and Certification: 

All of our electricians undergo comprehensive training and obtain relevant certifications before working with electrical systems. They all have knowledge on how to safely operate and deal with potential hazards by following safety procedures. Proper training, certification and staying updated on the latest safety practices reduces the risk of electrical accidents significantly.

Regular Inspection and Maintenance: 

To ensure any potential electrical hazards or general wear and tear, electricians conduct routine inspections of tools, equipment and wiring. This helps to prevent accidents caused by faulty or outdated equipment to ensure a safe environment not only for electricians but also for occupants. The National Fire Protection Association reports that regular inspection and maintenance prevents 60% of electrical fires. 


Incorporating these safety measures into every aspect of our electrical work guarantees that our electricians operate with the highest level of caution and competence. By prioritizing safety above all else, we strive to create a secure environment for our team, our clients, and the communities we serve. Together, we can power the world with electricity while ensuring the well-being of those who work tirelessly to keep the lights on. Stay safe, and let us illuminate responsibly and confidently!
