Electrical Grounding


Proper electrical grounding can help prevent electrical injury. Most electrical equipment is grounded with either a three-prong plug or a two-prong plug and insulation. Because a grounding system may be defective without your knowledge, use a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) to ensure electrical safety. GFCI's are required in moist or potentially damp environments.
