OSHA Launches Electric Power Safety eTool

Approximately 80 workers die from electric shock each year while working on electrical equipment or related utility operations. To help prevent such deaths, OSHA recently published the Electric Power Generation, Transmission and Distribution Standard eTool.
Recent deaths have illustrated the dangers of working with electric power. For example, a worker installing decorative lights on a tree was electrocuted after touching a high-powered overhead electrical line. Another worker was electrocuted after contacting an overhead high-voltage line with a portable light tower while working at a water main repair site.
