Electricity and electrical products play fundamental roles in how we do business. If not used or maintained appropriately, they can pose serious risks. Over the last ten years, more than 30,000 workers have been injured in workplace electrical accidents.
While electrical hazards are not the leading cause of on-the-job injuries and accidents, they are disproportionately fatal and costly. They not only disrupt the lives of workers and their families but also impact productivity. The good news is that most on-the-job electrocutions and electrical injuries can be prevented.
The Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI), the leading authority on workplace electrical safety, recognizes that each work environment presents different electrical hazards. ESFI’s workplace safety materials help employees make safe choices and provide tips for creating a safer environment, regardless of the setting.
