When working with Metallic water and gas services, plumbers can get an electric shock if there is a fault in the electrical supply system on the premises or in the street. Current will flow in the earth wire and onto water and gas piping system making it live which can cause a serious or fatal electric shock. It is recommended a temporary bridging or temporary continuity bond is applied to both sides of the pipe being cut and kept in place until the work is complete. EFO have a range of essential temporary continuity bonds available to fit a range of pipe sizes. Electrical insulated gloves should also be used when applying the temporary continuity bonds.
