Researchers of occupational electrical medical emergencies show that in a six-year period 32,840 serious but non-fatal injuries occurred, some 60% involving electric shock and 40% involving electric burns. Obviously, the electric shock injuries occurred in relation to low-voltage equipment, because electric shock in relation to medium-voltage equipment is, as a rule, fatal. It is reported that in the U.S., about 2,000 arc burn-related injuries occur and require hospitalization each year. Thus, the impact of such injuries on workers becomes a major concern in itself, beyond the economic aspects (which are not to be ignored).
