What are the precautions taken to avoid electric shock?

To prevent shock, it is advisable to keep work areas, equipment, and clothing dry at all times. Fix water leaks immediately. Make sure that you are well insulated. Wear dry gloves, rubber-soled shoes, or stand on a dry board or platform.

10 Easy Ways to Prevent Home Electrical Hazards
    1. Never put fingers or other objects in an outlet.
    2. Keep metal objects out of toasters
    3. Never use anything with a cord or plug around water.
    4. Never pull a plug out by its cord
    5. Stay away from substations and power lines
    6. Don't climb on power poles
    7. Never fly kites near power lines
    8. Stay away from broken or fallen power lines
    9. Never touch or climb trees that are near power lines
    10. Never touch big, metal transformer boxes with warning signs
    11. Obey warning signs
    12. Unused wall outlets should be secured. Plastic inserts can be used but they can be pulled off and stuck in the mouth. Consider using safety outlets that prevent foreign objects from being inserted. You can also block outlets with the creative arrangement of furniture.
    13. If you're temporarily using extension cords, hide them behind furniture or use a hide-a-cord device. You can also put electrical tape over unused plug holes on cords.
    14. Put electrical devices such as DVD players on a shelf out of reach, or behind a barrier.
    15. Store bathroom and kitchen electrical appliances – like hair dryers and toasters – out of reach of curious children.
