E L E C T R I C A L HAZARDS
High voltage is used in the operation of some equipment. Death
on contact may result if personnel fail to observe safety precau-
4 Never work on electronic equipment
unless at least one other person familiar
with the operation and hazards of the
equipment is nearby. That person should
also be competent in giving first aid. When an operator helps a
technician, that operator must be warned about dangerous areas.
4 Shut off power supply to equipment before beginning work. When
working inside equipment with power off, take special care to
ground every capacitor likely to hold a dangerous potential.
4 Be careful not to contact high-voltage connections when installing
or operating this equipment.
4 Remove rings, bracelets, wristwatches, and neck chains before
working on any vehicle. Jewelry can catch on equipment and
cause injury, or may cause a short across an electrical circuit
causing severe burns or electrical shock.
4 Keep one hand away from the equipment to reduce the hazard of
current flowing through life-sustaining organs of the body.
