Ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) are used in wet and hazardous settings and have proven to be a life-saving technology. A GFCI disconnects a circuit when it detects that the electrical current is not balanced between the energized conductor and the return neutral conductor. An imbalance can indicate current leakage through the body of a grounded person who accidentally contacts the energized part of the circuit. GFCI devices disconnect quickly enough to prevent injury.
Risks are inherent in industrial plants and other settings where workers come into contact with heavy equipment and processes combining metal surfaces, electrical machinery and power systems. GFCI-compliance and watertight connections are critical wherever power components contact moisture, chemicals, weather and other harsh environmental conditions. Industrial operations are at risk anytime unprotected electrical connections are exposed to moisture, metals and harsh conditions. The improper use of wiring and electrical equipment can cause any number of problems, ranging from nuisance tripping or short circuits causing interruptions in power flow to major malfunctions that pose significant risk of injury and death due to electrocution or fire.
