Electrical safety is an engineering field that seeks to assess the risks that can take place in electrical and electronic equipment. It regulates responsible use of electricity and the maintenance of electric and electronic systems with the goal of guaranteeing the integrity of people and assets.
Within the scope of safety, there are international standards for the commercialisation of products. Compliance with such standards is assessed by means of the application of risk assessment regulations.
