Worker Electrocution Leads to Fine

As an Atlanta Workman’s Compensation lawyer, electrocution injuries are commonly seen. With proper workplace safety practices, they are almost always avoidable, and should not happen in the modern workplace.

Recently, OSHA cited a contractor following a work injury and workplace death caused by an employee removing contacting a live wire while removing a demountable wall. The employer was cited for failing to protect employees from energized electrical circuits and failing to tell workers about energized electrical components in the area.

OSHA issued willful citations, which means the employer acted with intentional disregard of, or plain indifference to, OSHA requirements. Had the employer told its workers about the location of electrical lines, the workplace death, and Workers Compensation case, could have been avoided.
