Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI)

Electrical Safety Month – the Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupter!
This #EatonTechTalk Live session is going to kick off electrical safety month with a deep dive into shock protection. I could not think of a topic more worthy of this than shock protection as all too many succumb to the negative attributes of electricity when solutions like GFCI are readily available and won’t break the bank. We’ll review the technology, the standards, and the Codes including what is going on with NEC 2023! This device is there to reduce the likelihood of electric shock and it is making a difference.
We’ll take a look at the fact that there is still work to be done! Join us today at 5:00PM Eastern for this session and watch out for alot of safety chats and info and opportunities the entire Month of May!
We see GFCI protection is bathrooms, kitchens, outdoors and other areas in and around water but it doesn’t take mixing water and electricity to kill you. We’ll explore even more data to demonstrate there is a lot of work to be done. Please check out the shock statistics from the CPSC and don’t forget to take a look at the types of events that are causing deaths due to electrocution. We are still losing lives in residential homes and I have to ask why that is the case when cost effective solutions exist to prevent that loss of life.
My Name is Thomas Domitrovich and I’m doing everything I can to help change our safety culture. Together we can make a difference.
