Industrial work is somewhat known for its risk for injury. However, it's still not something people often think about when actually doing the work that risks so much injury in such a substantial way. There are various ways injuries can happen when doing industrial work.
The most common cause is due to electricity. In 2015 alone, electrical hazards caused 134 workplace fatalities and 2,480 injuries that resulted in lost work days. Electrocution is the sixth most common cause of workplace deaths in the United States. Despite the statistics, preventive measures are insufficient and electrical hazards continue to cause injuries and deaths.
