Working with electricity is extremely dangerous, so it’s important to always hire qualified electrical workers for those jobs. At the workplace or job site, 69% of all electrical fatalities involved non-electrical workers. Overhead power lines, unexpected contact with electricity, working on energized parts, ground faults, and damaged wiring accounted for 92% of electrical fatalities.
Avoid catastrophe by knowing when to say when. If you feel unsafe performing a job, STOP and say something. Avoid electrical rooms and other potentially hazardous areas. Make sure GFCI protection is installed where electricity and water may come in contact. And always look up before performing a task outside to avoid power lines. Be smart and stay safe.
