Electrocution Accidents on Construction Sites in South Carolina
Construction workers are constantly working with and around electrical equipment, circuits, and power lines. Electricity poses a serious health risk to workers if safety measures are neglected.
Over a recent seven-year period, around 5,500 construction workers suffered electrical accidents – more than in any other industry, including utilities.
In fact, a construction laborer is more likely to suffer a fatal electrical injury than an electrical power line installer or repairer.
