With electrocution being the 4th leading cause of fatalities in industry, it is important to ensure that employees are trained properly to work with electrical equipment. Though electrocution is a hazard, it is important to also remember the other hazards while dealing with electricity:
·         Arc Flash and Arc Blasts
·         Fire Ignition
·         Falls
 
Thanks to the NFPA, these hazards can be prevented by:
·         Determining the operating voltage
·         Determining the approach boundaries
·         Determining (and using) proper PPE
 
Everyone has a responsibility when it comes to safety. Employers are responsible for ensuring safety policies and procedures, training employees, and providing proper PPE when necessary. Employees are responsible for following procedures put into place by their employers. Each person is responsible for ensuring their own safety.
