Electrocution accidents unfortunately are not uncommon at construction sites and other workplaces. Around 400 people die in the U.S.A every year due to electrocution accidents at construction sites. Electrocution accidents occur when metal equipment or heavy moving machinery comes into contact with power lines. Poor installation and maintenance of electrical equipment can also cause electrocution accidents. According to the Occupational and Safety Administration(OSHA), around 350 construction workers are fatally electrocuted on job sites each year.
