Reduction of electric shock accidents
Project: Nikola Tesla
The list of accidents due to electric shock is not over. Every month we lose two of our fellow human beings, according to ELSTAT data. It is not possible nowadays for technology to have provided almost all the protective devices and devices and for so many accidents to happen. Seeing this paradox in Isocom, We created a Working Group in February 2020 under the name Nikola Tesla which came up with the following four proposals, expecting a 90 % reduction in fatal electric shock accidents.
- Mandatory installation of 2 relays in a row per terminal line.
- Placing a sticker on the electrical panel with instructions for checking the proper operation of the current leakage relay and the test date.
- Automatic notification by e-mail from HEDNO for the re-inspection of the internal electrical installation.
- Establish a leakage control relay control day twice a year (Tesla Day) on the day of the time change.
The test method is simple.
We press the button that you are on it and its switch and the power must fall. If the interruption does not happen we have a problem We are unprotected and we have to call an electrician!
In order for these proposals to work, they must be included in our legal framework or even in the EN 385 standard. And saving a life is very important. The expected result is that in our country at least one life per month is saved.
