Resumen Results of experiments with pigs to determine the mean hazardous current intensity for ventricular fibrillation are discussed. The minimum current intensity, being fatal under worst-case conditions, and the dangerous values of different current types are indicated. The heart-current factor, which allows for the amount of current flowing through the heart, depends on the current path in the body; values for this factor are tabulated. The effects of an electrical accident are subdivided into 3 classes in relation to the intensity and resistance of the total circuit. Finally, the safe ranges of a current-operated earth leakage circuit breaker with 30mA rated leakage current are dealt with.
