Electrical hazards


"Three photos of a 32A TP&N temporary supply, installed by the local, qualified electrician at a village hall in rural Romania. With no three phase board in the building, one phase was fed directly from the external incomer, with the other two phases, neutral and earth coming from an internal distribution board. Photo 1 shows the external supply box, which had no functioning lock and was just by the buildings side entrance, used by the children's play group. Photo 2 shows the internal distribution board in an unlocked cupboard and yes the bare ends bottom left were dead, thanks to the three missing fuses just above; the bare 'neutral' connections at the bottom, however, were not. Photo 3 shows where the phases met on the floor in a corridor. Needless to say some additional safety precautions were taken before we allowed our party of young people into the building!"
