Electrical Accidents & Injuries

Unsafe han­dling of elec­tric­ity can result in fatal elec­tro­cu­tion acci­dents or severe elec­tri­cal shocks and burns. In the work­place, in pub­lic places, and at home, unsafe elec­tri­cal instal­la­tion or usage can result in deadly injuries. For exam­ple, when an elec­tri­cal prod­uct man­u­fac­turer fails to incor­po­rate safety fea­tures, the result can be an elec­tri­cal shock and burn. When an elec­tri­cian fails to prop­erly install wiring, injuries can result.
