An electric shock is the pathophysiological effect of an electric current through the human body. Its passage affects essentially the muscular, circulatory and respiratory functions and sometimes results in serious burns.

The degree of danger for the victim is a function of the magnitude of the current, the parts of the body through which the current passes, and the duration of current flow. Electrical fires are caused by overloads, short circuits and earth leakage currents, but also by electric arcs in cables and connections. Protection measures are described in Protection against electrical fire risks. When a current exceeding 30 mA passes near the heart of a human body, the person concerned is in serious danger if the current is not interrupted in a very short time.


The protection of persons against electric shock in LV installations must be provided in conformity with appropriate national standards, statutory regulations, codes of practice, official guides iwc circulars etc. Relevant IEC standards include: Possibility of irreversible effects AC zone: Threshold of perception of current B curve: Threshold of muscular reactions C 1 curve: Ventricular fibrillation unlikely to happen C 2 curve: The fundamental rule of protection against electric shock is provided by the document IEC “Protection against electric shock — Common aspects for installations and equipment” which covers both electrical installations and electrical equipment.

Hazardous-live-parts shall not be accessible, and accessible conductive parts shall not be hazardous.

ice This 64079 to a person coming into contact with a conductor which is live in normal circumstances see Fig. This refers to a person coming into contact with an exposed conductive-part which is not normally live, but has become live accidentally due to insulation failure or some other cause. The fault current raises the exposed-conductive-part to a voltage liable to be hazardous as it generates a touch current through a person coming into contact with this exposed-conductive-part see Fig.
