Electricity is a critical part of modern home and work environments. Electricity infrastructure, appliances and tools provide the foundation for these environments.
The dangers associated with dynamic or flowing electricity include burns, shock, arc-blast, explosions and fires. The impact of shock is dependent on the amount of exposure to electricity. Electrical shock can cause visible damage such as burns or unseen damage such as internal bleeding, destruction of nerves or muscle and can result in falls which cause physical damage.
Explosions can occur when electricty acts as a source of ignition and fires can occur when electrical components overheat and cause items surrounding or contacting them to combust.
Guidance for prevention of electrical related incidents can be found in 29 CFR 1910.301-399
