Unfortunately thousands of people are electrocuted each year as a result of contact with power lines or other power sources. The number of deaths and severe injuries from such accidents has been increasing. Electrocution is now the fifth leading cause of work-related deaths in the United States, with over 50% of the total occurring in the construction industry.
Electrical accidents and electrocution are often related to electrical power system failures including circuit breakers, motors, switchgear, generators and transformers.
People are also injured by defective electrical equipment, ladders and cranes coming into contact with power lines. Possible parties to these accidents are equipment manufacturers, construction entities, and utility companies.
