Safety switches (also known as RCDs or RCBOs) - what are they?

It is important to use safety switches in order to prevent electric shock. When current leakage is detected, they shut off the electricity supply. The current flowing through a person is stopped, preventing serious electric shock and burns. The device almost instantly activates and reduces the risk of electrical accidents by switching off the circuit within 0.03 seconds.
