Electrical contact injuries

, : Electrical contact injuries. Canadian Family Physician Medecin de Famille Canadien 28: 1591-1595

Electrical contact injuries result in death and irreparable damage in electrical system workers. The pattern of injury is different from other burns, and younger employees are the most at risk. Two factors cause most injuries: unsafe work practice or defective equipment. Primary prevention lies beyond the scope of the medical practitioner, but secondary and tertiary prevention provide some opportunity to modify the devastation of these injuries. Secondary prevention involves education of the work force to act promptly in aiding an injured fellow worker; tertiary prevention usually involves rehabilitation of an amputee.
