Electrical hazards cause more than 300 deaths and 4,000 injuries in the workplace every year. While electrical hazards are not the leading cause of workplace injuries and accidents, they are disproportionately fatal and costly. These injuries not only disrupt the lives of the workers and their families, but also impact the productivity of employers. OSHA’s electrical standards are designed to protect employees exposed to dangers such as electric shock, electrocution, fires, and explosions. But because of the language, interpreting and applying these standards can be difficult. A thorough understanding of OSHA electrical safety requirements, as they apply to your facility, is essential for minimizing electrical accidents and ensuring compliance.
