Dangers of Overloaded Circuits: A Benjamin and Imoh’s Story

Benjamin was known to be diligent at his workplace. He was meticulous in all his operations, but there was one aspect of his job that he had overlooked—the importance of electrical safety. His colleague, Imoh, had always been cautious about it, but Benjamin had never paid it much heed.

One day, as Benjamin was preparing for an important presentation, he plugged multiple devices into a power strip under his desk. The power strip was already overloaded with various chargers and equipment, but Benjamin didn’t think twice about it. He was in a rush to get everything set up, and time was ticking.

As Benjamin powered on his devices, a spark ensued from the overloaded power strip, igniting a small fire beneath his desk. In a matter of seconds, the flames grew uncontrollable, and thick smoke began to fill the office. Panic spread like wildfire as employees briskly walked to gather at the muster point, their safety training kicking in.

Amid the chaos, Imoh, who had always been conscious of electrical safety, remembered the fire extinguisher kept nearby. He bravely fought the flames and managed to contain the fire until the firefighters arrived. Thankfully, everyone in the office evacuated safely, but the incident left Benjamin shaken and regretful.
