Stop, Think, & Check Before You Connect

For the Month of February Environmental Health & Safety invites the campus community to think about electrical safety in mind. Electrical safety can often be overlooked but affect essentially everyone on campus. Most electrical systems are designed so that we never directly encounter electrical currents, but those systems can be damaged or fail, resulting in electrical shock, burns, or even fires.
