These days, we are living in a super-modern time where things we never imagined earlier have become fundamental in our life. Thanks to Thomas Alva Edison who by inventing the light bulb illuminated the world for us.
As electricity has become the basic need of our life – electricians have become absolutely essential
That’s why we should take a closer look at the importance of electricians and what they do:
Nowadays, everyone feels like a bit of an electrician simply by plugging in the fridge, by changing a light bulb or wiring up the complex entertaining system: plug it in and somehow it all works without any problems or sparks. You might feel like you could have been an electrician if you would really wanted to. BUT there is a huge difference between changing a light bulb and being an electrician.
Handling electricity has a high risk and potential danger of electric shock, electrocution, fire or any other electric incidents – it always needs to be handled with care! That’s why you should always use a licensed electrician – they will ensure that the work meets the safety standards and is carried out safely.
An electrician has to pass an apprenticeship, is highly trained and has practical experience and needs to be licenced to operate. In addition, an electrician needs to have normal colour vision, the ability to work at heights and manual dexterity as well as physical fitness.
An electrician can test, install, maintain and repair electrical wiring, electronics and circuit boards. These services can be either inside or outside a commercial or residential property, on electrical machinery and industrial robotics and equipment and on power generation facilities. They can work on internet, data, telephone and video cabling and wiring systems such as security and alarm systems, too.
