With the school year winding down (or already complete for some!) the excitement of pools, lakes, beaches, and the like is in full force. Continuing the theme of Electrical Safety Month, this week’s flyer is focused on an unknown danger for many: electric shock drowning. There have been a number of articles recently detailing instances of such (we even shared one on our Facebook Page not too long ago), and we feel this flyer can be insanely useful for everyone. We highly recommend printing it out and making yourself, and everyone you pool with, familiar with every possible aspect of electric shock drowning.
Keep in mind, the real dangers are out in lakes, ponds, and oceans, but electric shock can happen anywhere there is water. For further information regarding electric shock drowning, we recommend you visit the Electrical Safety Foundation International .
