Electrical Accidents and Electrocutions

Overview

Incidents and accidents in industrial locations not only result in major injuries and deaths but can also shutdown of the facility pending a thorough investigation of the accident by authorities.

Industrial and manufacturing plants have high energy needs. As a result, electrical distribution equipment is found everywhere in those plants. Whether carrying high voltage or transmitting high current levels, they can lead to catastrophic injuries and sometimes death in the wrong hands. Our electrical engineers are experienced in these large facilities and commonly are called upon to determine the cause of an incident or accident in a commercial or industrial facility. We examine the condition of both the equipment being served and the power distribution system serving it to ensure that they are both in safe operating condition. We also inspect for the presence of, and the proper employment of, lock-out/tag-out procedures.
