Approximately 723 people are electrocuted annually per 100 million population in India according to a presentation made on National Workshop on Electrical Safety 12thApril, 2016. This figure is multiple times high in comparison to other nations. The presentation also gave a safety score of 16 % for India which is the least out of all G20 nations. Reports from the media claims over 80 % of fire accidents in Mumbai are due to short circuits. Video of Webinar - Part 1 (introduction and key note address)

Most often ELECTRICAL SAFETY is used as a marketing tool rather than applying it practically. An analysis on the electrical wiring shows a big scope for improvement, which are mandatory for achieving “ELECTRICAL SAFETY” in buildings. Often electrical installations in modern and critical building lack the fundamental safety measures. In several cases nonelectrical engineers design, erect and maintain a critical electrical installation.
The webinar will explain fundamentals of “Electrical safety in an installation” and the modern measures necessary in a building to make “Electrical safe buildings”. The webinar will also discuss on basic and mandatory requirements in an electrical installation to avoid fire due to short circuit, which is often missing in our modern buildings.
