How Do Electrocution Accidents Happen?
Human error and/or carelessness on the job is a major factor in most electrocution accidents. According to OSHA, the most common causes of electrocution accidents on construction sites are:
- Failure to follow manufacturers’ instructions
- Improper use of extension and flexible cords
- Improper grounding of electrical equipment
- Lack of ground-fault protection
- Contact with power lines
OSHA was created by the government to set and enforce safety standards and regulations for workers and businesses in order to keep employees and patrons safe. However, business owners can sometimes ignore or overlook these regulations which can lead injured employees, customers, and bystanders. When this happens, the negligent business owner can be held liable and thus, must render compensation unto the injured person(s).
