Electrical Monitor - - NEWS -

nter­na­tional Cop­per As­so­ci­a­tion In­dia (ICA In­dia), as a part of its sem­i­nars on elec­tri­cal safety across In­dia, con­ducted a na­tional sem­i­nar on Elec­tri­cal Safety in Hyderabad on March 1, 2016. The sem­i­nar helped out­line the reg­u­la­tions to en­sure that elec­tri­cal in­stal­la­tion safety stan­dards are ad­hered and fa­mil­iar­ize the au­di­ence with the need to fol­low them.

The ob­jec­tive of this sem­i­nar was to dis­cuss elec­tri­cal safety, to re­duce the loss of lives and prop­er­ties and to ed­u­cate the in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als for us­ing the elec­tri­cal ap­pli­ances safely, ICA In­dia along with the panel of ex­perts or­gan­ised this sem­i­nar with the aim of in­creas­ing the in­dus­try

Ipro­fes­sion­als' aware­ness of var­i­ous safety mea­sures and pre­cau­tions while in­stalling, han­dling, re­pair­ing or work­ing on elec­tri­cal in­stal­la­tions and urg­ing them to fol­low the re­vised stan­dards.

As per Na­tional Crime Records Bureau re­port 2014, around 11,000 peo­ple died in the year 2014 due to elec­tro­cu­tion and fire due to elec­tri­cal short cir­cuits i.e. 31 peo­ple die ev­ery day, elec­tric de­faults have been seen as the largest sin­gle rea­son for cause of build­ing fires. The govern­ment of In­dia has ac­corded high im­por­tance to this area. Un­for­tu­nately the poor prac­tices, im­proper and weak in­stal­la­tions, un­der­sized and in­fe­rior qual­ity of wires in the build­ings have re­sulted in an in­creas­ing num­ber of elec­tri­cal ac­ci­dents.

The sem­i­nar brought to light the need for shar­ing in­for­ma­tion & knowl­edge on in­ter­na­tional ex­pe­ri­ence and in­clu­sion of cer­ti­fied elec­tri­cians amongst in­dus­try stake­hold­ers.
