Guide to staying safe when creating electronic projects and DIY

Danger electricityI’m currently in the process of putting together an online guide to hobby electronics. One of the most important pages is one on electrical and diy safety and how to keep safe when creating electrical projects that may run from mains electricity or other high power sources.

As well as covering the obvious risk of electrocution, I’ve also included information the risk of fire and risks associated with constructing electronic and diy projects.

There are images showing the safety tools available, but also some examples where there is a dangerous occurrence. The danger photos were all created under control conditions and should not be repeated at home.

Please read the information and stay safe!

If there is anything else you think could be added please leave a common on the original post and I’ll update the guide as appropriate.
