Electricity is accepted as a source of power without much thought to the hazards encountered. Some employees work with electricity directly. This is the case with engineers, electricians, electronic technicians and power line workers. Others, such as office workers and salespeople work with it indirectly. Electrical Safety addresses the OSHA electrical standard which also addresses this serious workplace hazard that exposes employees to such dangers as electric shock, electrocution, fires and explosions. The terminal objective of the standard is to minimize the potential hazards by specifying design characteristics of safety in use of electrical equipment and systems.
