To reduce this from happening, there must be an adult supervision when using acid. If this does happen then run it under cold water and refer the person to the nearest First Aider. Sally Skelly Electricity Hazard - Electrocution People are likely to get electrocuted if they unsafe when using electrics and when they are unsupervised. To reduce this from happening, people must know the safety procedures before handling electrics. If you find someone being electrocuted, turn of the power supply. BUT DO NOT TOUCH THEM.
