The risks of the electrical sector

Electrical risk is generally everywhere prevalent in work environments; however, there are certain types of activities for which this risk is more significant.

Going into the risk assessment of the electrical industry, a distinction must be made between direct electrical contact (when the discharge is transmitted to the body directly from an energy source) and indirect (when there is passage of current through a conducting element). The possible damage to the body that can occur as a result of an electrical accident varies according to the duration of exposure, frequency and intensity of the current. Thus, one speaks of electrocution when there is passage of current through the body, or burns or hypersensitization of the affected area following brief or low intensity contact.

Risk management measures in the electrical industry cannot be separated from prevention, which is achieved by training workers, carrying out regular maintenance of facilities and equipment and adopting appropriate personal protective equipment.

Thanks to its experience in the electrical industry, Sicor has developed a helmet with an integrated visor that meets ENEL EA 0011/1985 specification regarding short-circuit arc protection and 5000 V voltage test.
