Will Rubber Boots Protect you from Electric Shock
Will Rubber Boots Protect you from Electric Shock

Wearing rubber boots while using electrical appliances helps absorb some of the shock and reduce the risk of a life-threatening injury.

The use of rubber boots is intended to cushion the user in case they inadvertently step on an electric current when adjusting an appliance or object. It acts as an added layer of protection against electrocution, but absolutely does not guarantee safety from electricity – it just reduces it for those who may be more prone to accidents. It’s also wise to check your power cord at any given time for any stray overlap or fraying which could indicate a malfunctioning cable that needs replacing and eliminates unnecessary risk.
