People that are involved in a profession where they deal with electrical equipment are more prone to electric shock injuries or electrocution.
There are several reasons for electric shocks in the workplace such as:
- Use of faulty equipment
- Improper or faulty wiring
- Drilling in the area with hidden electric wires
- Inefficient protective clothing and equipment
- Wires near to water
- Overloaded plug sockets
- Lack of employee training
It may also lead to a serious injury or even death in some cases, especially if the voltage of wires/equipment is very high. Common injuries caused by electric shock include burns, cardiac arrest, numbness, scarring, nerve damage, brain injury, breathing difficulties and others. Such injuries can be life-changing for the victim.
