Actually I am serious I was hoping to get some good feed back with these questions; I would like to share these with a safety group I?m in.
well how about getting a good jolt because someone backfed a New service I was working on and this new service did not even have the riser connected to the POCO. The guy backfed a small load center inside from a temp power box bypassing the GFI protection.The most common reason I see people getting shocked is that their supervisor tells them the cirucuit is dead and they believe them.
That would be like believing someone who told you the gun they handed you is not loaded.
Some of the information can be found in the document "Trends in Electrical Injury in the U.S., 1992-2002" . That is the most recent compilation of data I have been able to find online. I got my copy from the NIOSH web site at http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/mining/pubs/pubreference/outputid2707.htm . If anyone has more recent data, I'd be interested in a link.
