Let’s say that you are working on a piece of equipment and you accidentally forget to turn of the power coming into the unit. Not to worry though, you were smart enough to plug the unit into a GFCI / RCD (depending on where you live) as we all know that we should test equipment on a protected circuit - but that is a different post! The unit is in an ABS plastic box and as you are poking around, you place one hand on the unit to stabilize it. What you don’t know (yet) is that your hand is touching the neutral lead coming into the unit. A few moments later, you touch an active connection with your other hand. Given that you are touching both an active and neutral connection on a live piece of equipment that is in a plastic enclosure (i.e., neither you, nor the active is touching the unit ground), what happens next?
