One of OSHA’s Focus Four hazards, hazards which result in the most construction fatalities, is Electrocution.  It takes very little electricity to cause serious injury or harm.  Common household current ranges from 15 to 30 amps.  It takes less than 100 milliamps to cause cardiac standstill.

Train your employees to inspect electrical equipment to ensure that it is in good repair.  Inspect all extension cords for cuts in the insulation or missing insulation.  Never use an extension cord with a missing ground prong.
