ICAI organises National Workshop on Electrical Safety

  The use of electricity is an integral part of our lives and it is important to harness it safely and efficiently. There are many lives lost each year as a result of electrical-related incidents and fires. A number of electrical fatalities and injuries that occur each year can be overcome by a thorough understanding of electrical concepts. Yet due to the complexity of regulatory requirements, many safety professionals may not be fully equipped to handle the task. International Copper Association India (ICA India) as a part of its seminars and workshops on Electrical Safety across India, conducted 2nd National workshop on ‘Electrical Safety’ in Delhi on 12th April. The workshop’s aim was to help and outline the regulations to ensure that electrical installation safety standards are obeyed and explain to the audience the need to follow them.As per the National Crime Records Bureau’s report 2014, around 11,000 people died in the year 2014 due to electrocution and fire due to electrical short circuits. Electric defaults have been seen as the largest single reason for cause of building fires. Unfortunately poor practices, improper and weak installations, undersized and inferior quality of wires in the buildings have resulted in an increasing number of electrical accidents.
The objective of this workshop was to create awareness about electrical safety amongst stakeholders and sensitise them on how to mitigate risks in such situations. ICA India along with the panel of experts organised this workshop with the aim of increasing the industry professionals’ awareness of various safety measures and precautions while installing, handling, repairing or working on electrical installations and urging them to follow the revised standards.
There was also a book launch at the event an initiative by ICAI titled “Electricity in Building – Good Practice Guide.”
