Electrocution Accident Statistics
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), electrocution is the second leading cause of workplace death, making it one of the “Fatal Four” and something that every employer needs to be diligent about preventing. OSHA is working to reduce electrocutions and regularly issues citations for faulty electrical wiring methods, equipment, and components. Still, many employers do not take the safety precautions necessary to prevent electrocutions.
To help limit the occurrence of accidents, OSHA has recommended specific ways to control hazards, some of which can be found in their publication, Recommended Practice for Occupational Safety for Oil and Gas Well Drilling and Servicing Operations. Browsing through it may help you identify if your employer is taking the necessary precautions to keep you and other crew members safe.
Your Rights Under the Jones Act Following an Electrocution Injury
Under the Jones Act, a seaman has the right to sue anyone who contributed to the accident. This means that if you were electrocuted due to faulty equipment, you could sue the manufacturer of that equipment, as well as your employer for providing you with dangerous equipment or failing to properly train you for the job.
Regardless of the cause, our maritime lawyers will investigate the accident, determine who’s at fault and devote whatever resources necessary to ensuring that you’re fully compensated for your injuries.
