Every year in the United States, workplace electrical incidents result in more than 300 deaths and 3,500 injuries.  While electrical hazards are not the leading cause of on-the-job injuries and fatalities, they are disproportionately fatal and costly.  For every 13 electrical injuries - a worker dies.  Most of these electrically-related fatalities and injuries could be prevented.

Awareness of workplace electrical hazards and knowledge of best practices are critical to reducing these staggering statistics. That's why the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) has designated May "National Electrical Safety Month."

Lockout/Tagout Helps Prevent the Unexpected  

Each day, nearly 3 million professionals participate in work activities where lockout/tagout procedures should be used. Unfortunately, too many workers still put themselves unnecessarily at risk by working energized or neglecting to follow their company’s lockout/tagout procedures. Failure to comply with the lockout/tagout standard is listed as one of the top OSHA violations year after year.  

Lockout/tagout procedures safeguard workers from the unexpected energization, or startup, of machinery and equipment. They can also prevent the release of hazardous energy during service or maintenance activities.   Always deenergizing and following established lockout/tagout procedures saves lives. Compliance with OSHA’s lockout/tagout procedure prevents an estimated 120 fatalities and 50,000 injuries each year.    

Workers injured on the job from exposure to hazardous energy lose an average of 24 days of work to recuperation.
