More Electrocution Injury Information
Whether it is a tool or piece of machinery that comes in contact with an overhead power line or a contractor that forgets to turn the electricity to a building off before an air conditioning repairman begins work, electrocutions are all too common in the workplace. In fact, electrocutions were the fifth leading cause of death in the workplace from 1982 to 1994. And according to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), from 1980 to 1992, 5,348 workers died from contact with electrical energy. That is an average of 411 deaths per year and approximately 7% of all workplace deaths. The most common causes of electrical injuries are contact with electrical wiring and equipment, overhead power lines, and machinery. Electricians are not the only ones at risk. For example, electrocution is the fourth leading cause of death among construction workers in the United States. Approximately 140 construction workers are killed each year by contact with electricity. Other types of occupations that have a high risk of electrocution include carpenters, roofers, cement workers, and machine technicians. Electrocution can cause severe burns, ventricular fibrillation and even death.
