May Is National Electrical Safety Month

We all use electricity every day to keep things moving along in our busy lives. Some of us deal directly with potential electrical hazards on the job. While it is always important to be aware of nearby electrical devices, the month of May is a prime opportunity to renew that awareness. May is National Electrical Safety Month.

Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) is a nonprofit organization focused on promoting electrical safety in homes, schools, and workplaces. Annually, ESFI sponsors a campaign to educate its key audience. This year’s theme is Electrical Safety During Natural Disasters. This campaign focuses on preparing for, surviving, and rebuilding after natural disasters. 

OSHA estimates that more than 2,000 workers go to the hospital each year for treatment of injuries from arc-flash burns. This figure may be deflated, since all incidents may not be reported. According to a study published in Industrial Safety and Hygiene News, an estimated 30,000 arc-flash incidents occur annually, resulting in 7,000 burns and 400 fatalities. See these tips to help reduce these figures and keep your operators safe.

Here at CBS ArcSafe, our mission is to provide each customer with the highest quality remote operation equipment available, because we know that Distance Is Safety. Let us know how CBS ArcSafe can help keep your operators safe.
