    What an unfortunate reminder of the hazards of this trade. Work smart and stay safe, everyone.

    A good practise is to ALWAYS touch the unit with the back of your hand first before diving in.

    Pros with access to our Educational Forums might want to review my article on electrical troubleshooting with their fellow techs.

    How about instead of tempting fate, everybody go and spend $10-$20 on a Voltstick. Then use it to check every unit that you are working on. I've bought probably 5 of them over my career and I can tell you that they assist very well in finding bypassed disconnects and shorted to ground cabinets.
