      1st Answer Example

      "I believe that using equipment that's certified and well-built is one of the best ways to protect yourself on the job site. Having a supervisor and colleagues who are interested in the safety of others is also very important. I have heard about people on the job who lose their respect for electricity, which can be a very harmful attitude. Keeping that sense of respect is crucial."

      "It is important always to put safety first and refer to proper PPE and usage of tools equipment. I have heard many frightening stories from my grandfather, who was also an Electrician that has taught me the importance of completing work with the safety of myself and others in mind."

      Good answer! It's nice that you added in a bit about your grandfather, who seems to have taught you a lot about your trade! This addition will help the interviewer get to know you on a more personal level while still keeping the conversation work-related and on track."
