Power Line Workers at Risk of Electrocution Injury

Employees who work with overhead power lines are at a high risk for injury or death. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, electrocution injuries are one of the "fatal four" top causes of death in the construction industry. According to statistics, overhead power line accidents account for about two-fifths of all fatal electrocutions. The most common shock-related injury is a burn.

Three forms of burns commonly result from electrocution injuries:

  • Arc burns
  • Thermal contact burns
  • Electrical burns

Electrical burns differ from thermal and chemical burns in that they generally burn deeper than the others. Thermal and chemical burns usually affect the surface level of skin.
