Slide 2: 

www.spacetec.org Never touch a downed wire Don’t bring appliances near water Stay clear of power lines NO power tools on wet grass or wet surfaces Ground Fault Circuit Interruptors on ALL outdoor electrical outlets (GFCI)

GFCI Block Diagram : 

www.spacetec.org GFCI Block Diagram Circuit Breaker GFCI Wall Plug Trip Requirements: 10 millisecond response time 5 milliamp difference in outgoing and returning current

Slide 4: 

www.spacetec.org Wear appropriate attire Hard hat Goggles Tight clothing No rings Or metal jewelry Safety shoes Lockout Tagout Wear earmuffs in noisy areas Confine long hair or keep It trimmed when working Around machinery Breathing Protection

Body Resistance and Shock : 

www.spacetec.org Body Resistance and Shock Electrical resistance is defined as the opposition to flow of current in a circuit Resistance is measured in OHMS The lower the body resistance, the greater the potential shock hazard Body resistance can be measured with an ohm meter Any current flow above 5 milli-amperes is considered dangerous

Skin Conditions and Resistance : 

www.spacetec.org Skin Conditions and Resistance Dry skin resistance: 100,000 to 600,000 Ohms Wet skin resistance: 1,000 Ohms Internal body….hand to foot: 400 to 600 Ohms Ear to ear: about 100 Ohms Burns and neurological damage are the most common injuries caused by electrical shock THE DANGER OF HARMFUL SHOCK INCREASES AS THE VOLTAGE INCREASE VOLTAGES AS LOW AS 30V Can Be Dangerous !!

First Aid For Electrical Shock : 

www.spacetec.org First Aid For Electrical Shock Turn power OFF & remove victim from electric contact. Do Not touch victim until power is removed. Apply artificial respiration if not breathing. Keep victim warm. Keep victim head low so blood can flow to brain. Avoid placing victim where breathing obstruction may occur. Cold water or ice pack for first degree and minor second degree. Don’t break blisters ! For open blisters…no water or cold packs…use thick clean bandages to avoid infection. Do not remove charred clothing ..let a medical pro do it..

Slide 8: 

www.spacetec.org The Powers of Ten and Scientific Notation. It is often used in electronics to express very large numbers and very small numbers. Very small numbers are expressed by using negative powers of ten. For example, 3.2 x 10-8 is a scientific notation for the number 0.000000032. Here, “ten to the minus eight power” means “move the decimal place in 3.2 eight places to the left.” 4 7.9 x 10 = 79,000 9.1 x 10 8 = 910,000,000 7.9 x 10 -4 = 0.00079 Metric and Prefix Notations

Slide 9: 

www.spacetec.org Note: Symbols in red are most used……know them Metric and Prefix Notations

Prefix Examples : 

www.spacetec.org Prefix Examples 0.002A = 2 X 10-3A = 2mA 100kV = 100 X 10+3V = 1 x 10+5V= 100,000V 100µs = 100 x 10-6s = 1 x 10-4s = 0.0001s
