Safety is a HUMAN PERFORMANCE

If you want to be safe - do things right. Electronics projects are no place to "plug and play"

Follow these steps to come up with your EOP:


1. Identify what could go wrong

    -Electrical issues include parts overheating, electrical short circuits, etc

    -Putting parts in the wrong place

    -Magic Smoke (no bueno)

What are your first steps

Record your event

    -What caused the problem

Watch out for each other - help each other - keep each other accountable. Yes when we care about each other we are Safer Together!
