What the heck is going on with people and their stupidity regarding electricity. This is one hazard that if you dance with it long enough it will KILL YOU!!!! Why on earth would anyone take a chance with this stuff. RESPECT RESPECT RESPECT.

SAFETENG,
From the number of Tradesmen I normally work with(Painters, plasterers, plumbers and carpenters), most of them have a healthy respect for Electricity.
I do note that the majority of them say about the fact that you can't see the Electricity coming, so they stay away from any sort of wires whatsoever.
A good way of thinking I reckon!!.

Take a look at the 'Electrical Incidents and Occurrances' report just posted for Q2 - 2003 by the MOL in Ontario, Ca. It seems to show a record number of deaths and Powerline contacts in 2003 so far and it's only the 2nd Quarter!
