When it comes to employee electrical safety, the company is responsible for ensuring that a thorough and effective PPE program is in place to help protect workers from jobsite electrical hazards. An employer is financially accountable for injuries its employees sustain from an arc flash incident.
Because of the violent nature of an arc flash exposure when an employee is injured, the injury is serious – even resulting in death. It’s not uncommon for an injured employee to never regain their past quality of life. Extended medical care is often required, sometimes costing in excess of $1,000,000.
