You should have your dock’s electrical system inspected by a professional at least once a year to guarantee that it is ready for summer. Electrical inspections are always necessary and vital to the safety of anyone no matter where, but given the presence of water, marinas, docks and boat yards require extra caution. Wet surfaces and places can be extremely conductive, posing a greater shock risk. Schedule an electrical inspection for your boat dock every year.
Any boat dock owner should have GFCIs (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) installed as a safety measure. You and anybody else you take out on your boat are at risk of strange electrical mishaps that might result in harm or even death if each electrical outlet does not have a GFCI installed. Once you’ve installed GFCIs, make sure they work and stay that way with monthly testing.
Another safety measure is to install bonding jumpers. This gadget links all of your dock’s metal pieces to a ground rod on the shore. This will divert any electrical charge on your dock to the grounding rod and away from people. With these two devices together, you will ensure the safety of everyone on the dock.
Absolutely! To increase water recreation safety and accident avoidance, Safe Electricity, in collaboration with the American Boat and Yacht Council and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers/National Electrical Contractors Association, suggests following these steps:
- All electrical installations should be completed by a licensed electrician who is familiar with maritime rules and standards, and they should be examined at least once a year.
- On the circuits feeding power to the dock, ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) breakers should be installed.
- Neighboring docks can also be a source of shock. Inform your neighbors about the need for regular safety inspections and maintenance.
