Workplace injuries: Electrician's helper electrocuted

Working with electricity will always be hazardous. Inexperienced or unqualified individuals must never be allowed to handle electrical installations. It is the responsibility of California employers to verify the qualifications of electricians and ensure that unskilled helpers are not left to perform the jobs. Such an oversight might have led to fatal workplace injuries suffered by a man in another state.

California employers are once again reminded of the dangers of extreme heat. Exposure to heat can cause a workplace illness that could be fatal. The California Division of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration said employers must not be complacent about the threats of heat exhaustion; rather, they must ensure that a written plan for heat illness prevention is available to employees.
