Always wear proper eye protection whenever you work
on luminaires or replace a lamp. Although not a common
problem, lamps have been known to shatter due to operational
problems or when being turned into or out of the
socket.Luminaires can be heavy. Position the bucket so you do
not have to overreach or stretch while lifting or handling the
luminaire. Always secure the luminaire, cover and any other
items or tools inside the bucket so there is no danger of
them falling to the ground.

Always be certain the luminaire is properly grounded.
Use the grounding screw provided and run back to mechanical
ground. If the luminaire is not properly grounded, it
may become electrically ―hot‖ if a component or wire inside
the housing grounds itself to the housing. This can happen
if wires become frayed, or ballasts or other components are
damaged. The danger of electrical shock then exists when
the service technician touches the housing and grounds
another part of his or her body. The feeling of static electricity
when you are near to, or brush lightly against a luminaire
is a sign that it may be electrically ―hot.‖ De-energize the
fixture immediately and inspect for a possible short to
ground inside the housing.
If a lamp (light bulb) should break during installation or
removal, de-energize the fixture and remove the broken
lamp from the socket using a broken lamp base extractor.
14. Work carefully and use good judgment in all situations.
Most accidents are the result of carelessness.
