Q.9 Is it safe for the electrician to carry out electrical repairs outdoors during heavy downpour? Explain.


Answer :

No, it is not safe to repair electrical appliances outdoors during heavy downpour.

This is because rain water contains dissolved salts and ions which are conducting particles.

As the rain water can conduct electricity so the electrician may get electrical shocks while working outdoors during heavy downpour.
