Every year, laborers are killed by electricity in the workplace.
In 1970, the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) came into existence to try to minimize workplace deaths. In 1990 OSHA promulgated their Safety-Related Work Practices regulations and in conjunction with NFPA 70E, have targeted specific areas of electrical safety relating to employee exposure to electrical work-practice hazards.
However after nearly 20 plus years, it is estimated that less than 10 percent of America’s workplaces are in compliance with these safety-related work practice regulations.
NOWHERE else will you find the dedication and perseverance to electrical safety in the workplace.
