To better promote electrical safety in the workplace, the ESFI seeks to provide objective data on occupational electrical accidents to help decision-makers better allocate safety resources so they may have the maximum impact. This paper builds on earlier work[1] by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and supplements it with new information on electrical accidents as it becomes available. The data in this report cover U.S. occupational electrical accidents that occurred from 2003 to 2009. These data include the total number of electrical injuries and fatalities, the industries and occupations in which they occurred, and the rates of electrical injury and fatality for selected industries.
