What is Principles of Electricity and Its Effects?

Electricity is such a ubiquitous source of energy - and is so familiar - that it is frequently used in unsafe ways. As a result, the Health and Safety Executive receives, on average, reports of between 25-30 fatalities, and about 1000 major injuries per year as a result of accidental contact with electricity at work. Many of those killed or injured by contact with electricity are not doing electrical work when they receive an electric shock. Instead they are engaged in other tasks such as carpentry, labouring, machinery maintenance or building work.
