Electric Shock
2007-12-07 16:33:00

An electric shock can occur upon contact of a human's body with any source of voltage high enough to cause sufficient current flow through the muscles or hair. The minimum current a human can feel is thought to be about 1 milliampere (mA). The current may cause tissue damage or fibrillation if it is sufficiently high.

 

Tips:

 

·Cut off the electricity immediately. When the source of electricity could not be found in time or there is difficulty in reaching it, remove the power line from the victim with dry wood stick, bamboo stick or other insulated objects.

·Do not touch the victim directly. Do not remove the power line from the victim with wet or metal objects. 

·After the victim is removed from the electricity, unbutton his/her clothes and check the breath and impulse, and then dial 120 for help.

·The emergency number for electricity department is 95598. 
·Safe distances between electrical equipment of 10, 35, 110, 220, and 500 kilovolts are 0.7, 1, 1.5, 3, and 5 meters.

 

Suggestions:


·When household electric appliance catches fire, and can not be put out in time, dial 110.

·Do not tie ropes to power poles to dry clothes in the sun.

·Do not plug in or plug out with wet hand. Do not wipe electriferous switches, sockets, or lamps with wet rag.
