Common Cause of Electrocution

Electrocution occurs when a person comes in contact with an electrical energy source. In some cases, an electrical shock may not cause an injury, and in other cases, it can be fatal. Over 1,000 people in the U.S. die each year due to electrocution. Most of these deaths are job-related injuries. The severity of the injury depends on the amount of electric current a person is exposed to. If the current has low voltage electricity (less than 500 volts), it does not cause significant injuries. Higher voltage electricity has the potential to result in serious damages.

Employers are required to establish proper rules and procedures on how to access electrical objects without getting hurt. It is also their responsibility to ensure that all workers know the importance of shutting off electrical systems before performing repairs and implementing color-coded wiring. When employers fail to follow these regulations, they put workers at risk of electrocution.

Symptoms of Electrocution

Unfortunately, there are cases when symptoms are not obvious in electrocution injuries.

Below are a few symptoms of an electric shock injury:

  • Abnormal heart rhythm
  • Blisters
  • Burn
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Muscle spasms
  • Nerve injury
  • Pain in the muscles
  • Seizures
  • Sensation of pins and needles
  • Unconsciousness

If you help someone who has experienced an electrical shock, it is vital to take precaution to ensure you also don’t become shocked.
