As a building owner, facility manager, or general contractor, electrical safety is a concern shared by all in the building industry. Approximately 300 deaths occur each year by accidental electrocutions. Over 800 people die annually due to fires caused by electrical faults. Each year, electrical mishaps account for thousands of people sustaining shock injury or burns, and electrical failures cause over $1.3 billion in property damage. (Source: National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).) Electrical safety is an essential element to any successful building project from conception to day-to-day operation.
