Electricians are usually exposed to injury by electricity. An electrician may experience electric shock in direct contact with energized circuit conductors or due to stray voltage caused by faults in a system. An electric arc exposes eyes and skin to huge  amounts of heat and light. Electricians are trained to work safely and take many measures to minimize the danger of injury and electric shock. Lockout and tag out procedures are always used to make sure that circuits are proven to be de-energized before work is done. Personal protective equipment provides electrical insulation as well as protection from mechanical impact; gloves have insulating rubber liners, work boots and hard hats also provide protection from shock. If a system cannot be de-energized, this tools must be used; even high-voltage transmission lines can be repaired while energized, when necessary.
