A "Les" Hazardous New Year

Posted by Nick Schiltz on January 1


We hope your New Year starts off with a bang, but not the type Burnie & Les are recovering from. As we begin this new decade, let's pray for better statistics than we've had in the past ten years. New innovations in electrical safety are providing better safety solutions to reduce risk and save lives.

Over the last decade, each year has accounted for more than two thousand non-fatal injuries resulting from arc flash and electrocution. In nearly the first half of this past decade alone, the U.S. Department of Labor reported an average of 150 fatalities per year in the United States due to “exposure to electricity” and more than 50,000 injuries while performing Lockout/Tagout.

In 2020 and beyond, hopefully we'll see a reduction in these accidents as industries across the globe embrace and implement better practices in the electrical safety world. Let's work together to bring these numbers down and bring electricians home safely.

You can learn more about Grace's concept of "Safety-By-Design" in our eBook which highlights our Permanent Electrical Safety Devices (PESDs) that allow for maintenance and inspections to be safely conducted from outside of the electrical cabinet, inherently reducing the risk of arc flash and shock hazard significantly.

Here's to a safer New Year and a decade with safer electrical working conditions!
