7 Deadly Electrical Grounding Sins

Ground Potential Rise Explained

Did You Know that 8.6% of Employees Die Due to Electrocution?

Electrocution is one of the “Fatal Four” causes of workplace deaths according to the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The other three causes are falls and being struck by or caught between objects. Electrical risks include exposed wiring, faulty grounding, contact with power lines or energized conductors, faulty electrical panels and more.

Did You Know that Lightning Strike Damages Exceed $5 Billion Per Year?

According to the National Lightning Safety Institute (NLSI) lightning strike losses are from $5 to $6 billion per year. A typical lightning strike can cause deaths, injuries and millions of dollars in damages to equipment, machinery and critical infrastructure. Even worse, if the theory of global warming is correct we may see double or even triple the number of lightning strikes by mid-century according to the University of Florida Lightning Research Center.
