Utility Worker Injury
Because of the tremendous physical forces exerted on these workers, as well as the fact that they often work in confined spaces, in inclement weather, under or next to heavy objects, in noisy environments, and near moving mechanical parts, utility workers are often injured on the job.
According to a recent study, the utility industry has the highest rate of electrical fatalities (i.e., electrocution), with as many as 1.6 per 100,000 workers. Nonfatal electrical injuries, such as shock, flash burns and conduction burns, are also high. Other common utility worker injuries arise out of:
- falls from a height;
- trench cave-ins; and
- Section 200;
- Section 240; and
- Section 241(6).
