Ways to Avoid Electrical Incidents in the Workplace

According to OSHA, more than half of employee electrical injuries are caused by direct or indirect contact with live electricity from electrical installations in California. This is one of the leading causes of fatalities among workers.

The common types of electrical injuries include electrocutions and electric shocks, burns/blasts, and fatal falls caused as a result of contact with electrical bursts.

For businesses operating within California, adhering to stringent safety measures is not just a recommendation—it’s a necessity. Adherence ensures a foundational level of safety within the workplace. Here are some simple guidelines that are designed to protect employees from electrical risks:

  • Comply with OSHA regulations on electrical safety
  • Train employees on electrical safety and handling
  • Contact utility companies in advance to double-check power lines
  • Verify with electricians if electrical circuits/parts are not practical or would create a hazard
  • Conduct regular electrical maintenance routines

By implementing these strategies, businesses can foster a safer working environment that meets the standards of electrical audits in California, significantly reducing the risk of electrical incidents.
