When you're doing electrical work it is important to practice safety. Making mistakes while doing electrical work can result in personal injury or injuring someone else. One of the first things you should do is to take off all of your jewelry. This will help prevent you from getting electrocuted. Next, you should put on tight fitting clothes.

Baggy clothes can result in catching on wires, tools, or other objects. When working in a dangerous environment it is important not to be bumping into things and knocking things over. This is especially true when working on ceilings, roofs, or telephone poles. Wearing an electrical belt can help keep you safe by limiting trips up and down the ladder.

Also, as part of your outfit, it is important to wear shoes with thick rubber soles. This will prevent you from grounding yourself. For added security you can wear rubber globes and safety glasses. Wear the safety glasses especially when your making cuts in ceilings.

By following some of these safety tips, your work experience will be much safer.
