    With any luck, you’ve never had to deal with someone vandalizing a job site you’ve worked on in an attempt to sell the wire as scrap. The thieves who do this typically slip (or break) in, cut off any available wire and make a break for it with bits and pieces of wire still hanging in place. In some cases, they actually damage the rest of the structure trying to get as much wire as they can grab. It can be a real blow, both because it comes as a shock and because there’s now a lot of work that has to be redone.

    Electrical fires are sneaky, insidious and often odorless. They don’t produce smoke, so smoke detectors don’t immediately sound an alarm. When faulty or damaged electrical wiring heats up, it slowly begins to smolder. These types of fires can be so slow-burning that it can take months to actually ignite. Even worse, they can be very hard to extinguish once they take hold. It makes sense that the best approach is to prevent electrical fires instead of having to deal with one.

    Electrical Construction and Maintenance Power management company Eaton has issued a product safety bulletin for certain Eaton Heavy Duty 30A and 60A Safety Switches intended for use in heavy commercial, utility, and industrial applications. The safety switches referenced in the bulletin can potentially supply power when the handle is in the “off” position, subjecting the operator of the switch or any downstream equipment to risk of serious bodily injury or death.

    As the temperatures heat up, it’s time to review your warm weather safety standards for your electrical crew. While it’s important to stay on track while on working on projects or completing service calls for customers, you have a responsibility to protect your workers from exposure to temperature extremes. OSHA makes it easy for you to remember your responsibilities in this area, which come down to the organization’s three chosen keywords: Water, Rest, and Shade.

    Bradford Wills June 11, 2018 Each year, arc faults are responsible for more than 28,000 home fires, injuring or killing hundreds of people and causing more than $700 million in property damage1. Yet, arc fault circuit protection is still only mandated for 70 percent of a home’s electrical circuits. To get closer to 100 percent protection, consumers need to demand it, and electrical contractors need to get on board.
