Abstract Prefabricated electrical cable ducts represent a safety guarantee to workers, but they also involve certain hazards. In order to avoid serious accidents that may have fatal outcomes, it is therefore highly important that workers be aware of the hazards related to each type of task to be carried out, and that clear procedures be defined . This article describes safety procedures that apply to the various tasks carried out in junction boxes of prefabricated electrical ducts.
