Electricity is the lifeblood of modern society, it enhances our general quality of life and we are becoming increasingly reliant on it to power tools and devices we use both for work and entertainment or personal use. However, although electricity has many obvious benefits, it can also be a hidden killer if not treated carefully, as it can’t be seen, felt, smelled or heard until someone comes into contact with it, by which point it is often too late.
