    This consideration played a very significant role in some interesting communications developments that took place on the Cape in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Reading about Hertz's work stimulated Marconi to do some wireless telegraphy experiments of his own. In spite of what may have been some initial theatrics, Marconi's venture proved successful.

    Most occupational health and safety (OHS) professionals understand the difference between hazard and risk. However, the distinction between these terms is not well understood in the electrical industry, where they are often used interchangeably. This gap in understanding between OHS and electrical professionals needs to be bridged to ensure that electrical hazards, and the risks arising from those... View full abstract»

    Some work activities in electrical installations are sensitive to unexpected sources, especially when working on conductors to be broken or joined, or on overhead lines. Generally, there is uncertainty concerning the existence, risk, or seriousness of the exposure to these sources, and decisions on protective measures are frequently made under pressure in the field by the person performing the wor...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3211 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This article presents evidence that a major cause of residential lightning fires is electrical arc-fault current. Such arc-fault currents are a common result of both direct and indirect lightning strikes. These faults result from lightning overvoltage damage to the insulation of electricity supply conductors and appliances. Many of these overvoltages appear to be caused by indirect lightning strik...
