OSHA Says

Electricity through cordOSHA's electrical standards are designed to protect employees exposed to dangers such as electric shock, electrocution, fires, and explosions.

Electrically powered equipment can pose a significant hazard to workers, particularly when mishandled or not maintained.

Working with electricity can be dangerous. Engineers, electricians, construction workers and other professionals work with electricity directly, including working on overhead lines, cable harnesses, and circuit assemblies.

Others, such as office workers and sales people, work with electricity indirectly and may also be exposed to electrical hazards. Electricity is a serious workplace hazard.
