Effects of Electricity, Geocaching Electrical Safety


It doesn't take a lot of current to harm a person(Current=The flow of electrons).
A small amount of electricity can still cause a lot of damage. Take a look at the chart below for examples of what can happen if you get an electric shock. Remember, It's current and not voltage that kills(Voltage is what "pushes" the current along).

***The electricity in your house can be as dangerous as the electricity in outdoor power lines.*** (The only difference between the two is how you look after an electrical shock)

Play safe,
