What Skills Must An Electrician Have?
An electrician, over their training and working life, has developed a particular set of skills. These skills have helped them protect the family home and workplace for generations. They ensure wires are connected to the correct source, that nothing is loose and missing and that everything is safely and securely grounded.
An electricians superpowers include:
- Hawke Eyes. Having a keen eye for detail allows an electrician to know which wires safely connects to what. A mix up could cause anything from short circuiting your house or business, to starting a fire.
- Super Strength. One of the lesser known superpowers, an electrician must have a steady hand the and good physical endurance. Climbing, stretching and lifting heavy objects is all in a day’s work for our electrical superheroes.
- X-Ray Vision. It’s important that an electrician has the ability to see where a wire is going and what it will look like once everything has been fitted. Having the foresight to know of any obstacles when wiring a light, alarm or any other fixtures could be the difference between a successfully wiring a home, and having a faulty fixture.
