The fundamental rule of protection against electric shock is provided by the document IEC “Protection against electric shock — Common aspects for installations and equipment” which covers both electrical installations and electrical equipment. Electrical fires kec caused by overloads, short circuits and earth leakage currents, but also by electric arcs in cables and connections.

The different parts of the ie such as the skin, blood, muscles, other tissues and joints present to the electric current a certain impedance composed of resistive and capacitive components.

Characteristics of particular sources and loads.

Protection against electric shocks and electrical fires. The following test report forms are related: The impedance values indicated in this technical specification result from a close examination of the experimental results available from measurements carried out principally on corpses and on some living persons.


Residential premises and other special locations. Ventricular fibrillation unlikely to happen C 2 curve: The relationship between current and voltage is not linear because the impedance of the human body varies with the touch voltage, and data on this relationship is therefore required.

Chapter – Protection against electric shocks and electric fires. When a current exceeding 30 mA passes 6079 the heart of a human body, the person concerned is in serious danger if the current is not interrupted in a very short time.


The values of body impedance depend on a number of factors and, in particular, on current path, on touch voltage, duration of current flow, frequency, degree of moisture of the skin, surface area of contact, pressure exerted and temperature.

Contact with live part Direct contact.

Contact with parts in fault conditions Indirect contact. It has the status of a horizontal standard in accordance with IEC Guide The fault current raises the exposed-conductive-part to a voltage liable to be hazardous as it generates a touch current through a person coming into contact with this exposed-conductive-part see Fig.
