Electrical voltages in Electric and hybrid vehicles are significantly higher than in a regular vehicle and pose a serious electrocution risk if the correct measures are not taken. Components may retain a dangerous voltage and can be generated by the movement of the drive wheels even if the vehicle is switched off. For this reason, a rescue hook is a life-saving device that should be readily available where EVs are worked on.
Safety Rescue Hooks are the safest way to retrieve a victim of electric shock while protecting the rescuer. Being electrically insulated they allow the rescuer to separate the victim from the power source to allow first aid to be administered safely.
A rescue hook is an essential safety tool when working on electric vehicles. It should be stored in a clear, accessible and prominent place alongside instructions allowing anyone to be able to recover victims of electric shock in the safest way possible.
