Protective grounding for mains distribution outlets is built mainly to protect people from electric shock and to protect property from fire.

In many countries, national standards, building codes, and installation instructions define the minimum requirements and recommended practices. Often protective grounding is designed and built by the local power utility companies. In some projects Vaisala is responsible for designing and building the grounding system.
