Over 90% of all electrical equipment that fails safety inspection and testing, fails on the Visual Inspection.
The items shown here have failed because of physical damage that is easy to spot. Loss of the outer covering on electrical cables exposing the internal conductor wires, and damaged or missing insulation on the Active and Neutral pins of plugs, both have the potential to result in electric shock.
MAKE IT A HABIT……. Before you use any electrical equipment always do a quick visual check to make sure it is not damaged, and safe to use!
