You probably already knew that electrical injuries are classified according to four categories: always fatal electrocutions, electric shock, burns, and falls caused as a result of contact with electrical energy. But did you know that electrocutions were the fifth leading cause of death in the U.S.?

Did you know that about 400 workers are killed every year in the U.S. by electric current and that thousands are injured?

Did you know that over half of the deaths resulted from working on energized or "live" electric circuits without proper protection – often when it was not even necessary to work on "live" components?

Did you know that more than one-third of the electrocution deaths occurred at low voltage, under 600 volts?

Did you know that even the current drawn by a tiny 7.5 watt, 120-volt lamp, passed from hand to hand or hand to foot across the chest is enough to cause electrocution?

Did you know that nearly 200,000 young workers under the age of 18 suffer work-related injuries in the United States each year?

This third and final volume of the IEEE VuSpec Safety and Security Standards Series helps you discover practical and professional recommendations for managing the risks inherent in electrical work. Designed with content and for everyone, from students to senior level power professionals, IEEE VuSpec: Electrical Safety will help guide you, and supplement your existing training program, as only the finest IEEE Standards can. Exclusive IEEE VuSpec features maximize your efficiency. Use the point and click glossary of official standards terms, search within a document or across multiple documents, and let the index of keywords lead you to the right destination. Navigate the fresh new Macromedia Flash interface with ease, print a page or an entire standard, and do it all from your favorite web browser.

IEEE VuSpec: Electrical Safety is an essential resource.
