Extension Cords Tailgate


Introduction: Extension cords can be found in nearly all vocational settings due to the widespread use of electronic equipment and electrically powered tools. They are more susceptible to damage than fixed wiring because they are exposed, flexible, and unsecured. The normal wear and tear on extension cords can loosen or expose internal wires and create hazardous conditions. Extension cords are intended for temporary use only and are not intended to replace fixed wiring. Three prong wire cords that have not been extensively used and that are not modified represent less of a risk of electric shock.
