Common Types of Electrical Accidents in Industrial Sites

types of electric accidents

In industrial areas where electrical accidents can be commonplace, it is essential to ensure workers’ safety by taking the proper precautions.

Electric Shock

You can get an electric shock when you come into contact with an electrical current. This shock can lead to a simple tingling sensation or even more severe injuries such as muscle contraction or system failure.

Electrical Burns

Electrical burns are usually the result of a severe electric shock. This can damage internal and external tissues, it can cause injury to organs and it may even cause death after prolonged exposure.

Electrical Fires

While electric shocks and burns are employee-related accidents, electrical fires are invariably due to the work environment - usually caused by exposure to highly flammable materials.

Besides combustibles, Electronic Static Discharge (ESD) and electrical sparks may also cause an electrical fire; and failure to immediately put it out can lead to serious injuries and environmental damage – causing anything from company downtime to death.

Electrical Matting: Your Key to Prevent Workplace Accidents

Unsecured cords and plugs, poor wiring systems and the lack of preventive devices are also among the common causes of electrical accidents and an effective way to prevent them is to employ electrical safety precautions in the workplace - such as the use of electrical matting.

With rubber being a proven effective insulator, electrical matting can be a great way to promote employee safety in industrial settings – ensuring a safer and more productive working environment.
