Electrocution occurs when the body provides the most direct pathway for electrical current to reach the ground. It is very difficult to prevent electrical shock because electrical currents move very fast. If a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) is installed in your building, electrocution can be prevented. A GFCI detects any change in electrical current and switches off the power before electrocution can occur.
Not only are GFCIs a great way to protect you and your employees from potential electrocution, the National Electrical Code requires GFCI protection for most outdoor receptacles, bathroom receptacle circuits, garage wall outlets, kitchen/break room receptacles, and ALL receptacles in crawl spaces and unfinished basements.
