Hi,

Electricity kills and injures people. Around 1000 electrical accidents at work are reported to HSE each year and about 25 people die of their injuries.

Many deaths and injuries arise from:

# Work near overhead power lines.
# Mains electricity supplies (230 volt).
# Use of poorly maintained electrical equipment.
# Contact with underground power cables during excavation work.
# Use of unsuitable electrical equipment in explosive areas such as car paint spraying booths.

Fires started by poor electrical installations and faulty electrical appliances cause many additional deaths and injuries.

An electrician told me on a job that he knew of an electrician that got killed by coming into contact with a live 120 volt line.....very scary.

A cracked heat exchanger is one common cause of carbon monoxide in a home, especially in older furnaces. The best way to avoid the poisoning is to have your heating system inspected and serviced by a trained professional every winter.
