2 Don't tie advertisement boards, flags etc. to the electric post.
Industrial Consumers
1 Place men working sign boards on all switches before commencing work Do not close any switches unless you are familiar with the circuit which controls and know the reason for its being kept open
2 Ensure that all the controlling switches are opened and locked or the fuse withdrawn before working on any circuit or apparatus. Don't touch or tamper with any electrical gear or conductor. Unless you have made sure it is Dead and Earthed. High voltage apparatus may give leakage shock or flash over even without touching
3 Treat circuit as alive until they are proved to be dead Don't test a circuit with bare fingers or hand or other make shift devices to determine whether or not it is alive

7 Do test rubber gloves periodically Don't throw water on live electric equipment in case of fire. It is dangerous
8 Do place rubber mats in front of electrical switch boards. Do not use fire extinguishers on electrical equipment unless it is clearly marked as suitable for that purpose.
