Electrical cords, including extension cords, have been involved in several electrical shock, overheating, and smoke/fire incidents in the DOE complex. The typical contributor is damage that is visually apparent and which resulted from a single action. Extension cords present special concerns - concealed damage and improper use. Damaged plugs, receptacles and cords can result in higher and possibly damaging temperatures at the compromised locations and in the remaining unbroken conductor strands.
