INTRODUCTION Each year 120-V circuits cause more deaths and injuries than circuits of all other voltage levels combined. Such low-voltage circuits are extremely hazardous for two reasons. First, low-voltage circuits are the most common. Because they are the final distribution voltage, 240-V and 120-V circuits are used throughout residential, commercial, industrial, and utility systems. The second reason for the extreme danger of low-voltage circuits is user apathy. Comments such as "It can't hurt you; it's only 120 volts" are heard all too often. Reference to
