The Fundamental Laws of Electricity and Safety

Perhaps you're familiar with the myth that getting between the neutrals can hurt you worse than touching the hot. In fact, grounded (neutral) conductors can be as dangerous as ungrounded (hot) wires. The danger of electrocution exists any time the voltage is in excess of 30V. Consider what happens when a person becomes part of the neutral of a 120V circuit. Ohm's and Kirchoff's Law will be the basis

This sums up the cause of electric shock drownings and injuries. A ground fault (short circuit to ground) occurs on a boat. The safety ground wire is broken. This electrifies a boat's underwater metals creating a dangerous electric field in the water. If a person in the water enters this field they can be paralyzed (resulting in drowning) or electrocuted. DO NOT SWIM AROUND BOATS AND DOCKS USING AC ELECTRICAL POWER!

The Electric Shock Drowning Prevention Association is a nonprofit organization devoted to saving the lives of those who frequent our recreation waters.
