Electrocution

Electrocutions are among the most deadly construction accidents in the United States. According to the U.S. Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), electrocution is the second-most deadly of the "fatal four" construction hazards: falls, electrocution, "struck by" accidents, and "caught in/between" injuries.

Second only the falls, electrocution accidents are responsible for approximately 70 worker deaths every year – not to mention nonfatal electrocution injuries.

A recurring cause of electrocution resulting in injury or death is work performed in the vicinity of energized power lines. New construction, demolition of existing structures, or maintenance activities such as painting, HVAC or roof repairs may bring workers into contact with these potentially deadly objects. Often, work cannot be safely completed without properly identifying, insulating, or de-energizing the wires. In certain cases, the owner of the wires; either the Power Company or the property owner, can be held responsible for failing to take these actions to protect workers.
