Electrical safety risks are prevalent in any industry that has workers who are exposed to over 50 volts of electricity when performing a work task.
What types of industries and businesses are most prone to arc flash and electrical safety risks? Electrical safety risks are not specific to a particular industry or more prevalent in any type of business, but rather, those businesses and industries that have workers who are exposed to over 50 volts of electricity when performing a work task. Commonly, this risk is relegated to certain types of workers, such as electricians and maintenance staff, but other groups of workers cannot be excluded from the list based on the roles and responsibilities an organization assigns. Electrical risk should not be looked at as an industry-specific issue, but looked at on a task-by-task basis.
