This paper, titled “Occupations Most At-Risk in Fatal Overhead Power Line Incidents: Using OSHA Data to Get a Better Understanding” examined all electrical cases investigated by OSHA from 2000-2011 to determine the industries and occupations that often sustain injuries from overhead power line incidents as well as the scenarios associated with these events.

ESFI President Brett Brenner and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Senior Member James C. Cawley, P.E., co-presented the paper at the 2015 IEEE IAS Electrical Safety Workshop taking place January 26-30 in Louisville, KY.
