Electricians, construction workers, and power line workers are at high risk of having an electrocution accident in the work place. Depending on the electrical source and voltage, an electrocution can cause devastating burns to the skin, permanent bodily disfiguration, permanent damage to the nervous system, and abnormal contractions of the heart.
Employees electrocuted at work can sue their employer when the employers fails to provide a safe work environment. Even contract workers can sue a company regardless of being considered temporary workers. If you were electrocuted at work it’s important to contact us right away.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration requires employers to provide employees with proper protective equipment and proper training. Plus, installation such as lighting, equipment, motors, machines, appliances, switches, controls, and enclosures must be constructed and installed to minimize workplace electrical dangers.
