Analysis of work accidents with electrical origin

2017 IEEE International Conference on Environment and Electrical Engineering and 2017 IEEE Industrial and Commercial Power Systems Europe (EEEIC / I&CPS Europe), 2017

This paper shows an estimate of the phenomenon of work electrical accidents, taking into account year, working activity, severity and company size. The handling of accident information is highlighted and the ESAW (European Statistics on Accidents at Work) coding system is introduced. What we exactly mean with electrical accidents is focused, some critical issues in retrieving their data are discussed ...

A Technique for Trolley Arc Reduction

IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications, 1985

Arcing which occurs at the trolley shoe is one of the leading causes of electrical accidents in the coal mining industry. Arcs occur if trolley contact is made or broken under load. Some of these incidents are caused by improper vehicle operation and others occur as a result of unstable tracking conditions. The arcing can be reduced by detecting the ...


Fair warning

IEEE Industry Applications Magazine, 2005

This work discusses the fair warning system and prevention of electrical accidents through communication using material safety data sheets (MSDSs) and labeling in familiar formats adapted from training for chemical safety. Most employees work on, near or with electricity everyday, so occupational safety and health administration training awareness is required. Electrical hazard characterization remains a challenge to advancing mitigation based ...

  • Analysis of work accidents with electrical origin

    This paper shows an estimate of the phenomenon of work electrical accidents, taking into account year, working activity, severity and company size. The handling of accident information is highlighted and the ESAW (European Statistics on Accidents at Work) coding system is introduced. What we exactly mean with electrical accidents is focused, some critical issues in retrieving their data are discussed and some way to take into account all accidents with electrical origin are proposed.

  • A Technique for Trolley Arc Reduction

    Arcing which occurs at the trolley shoe is one of the leading causes of electrical accidents in the coal mining industry. Arcs occur if trolley contact is made or broken under load. Some of these incidents are caused by improper vehicle operation and others occur as a result of unstable tracking conditions. The arcing can be reduced by detecting the disconnect condition and snubbing the arc by responsive control circuitry. Once the disconnect has been completed, reconnection under load can be controlled with the same circuitry. A system of accomplishing this arc reduction is presented along with the results of a simulation used to test the effectiveness of the technique. Guidelines are suggested for incorporating arc-reducing control circuitry into mine track vehicles.

  • Fair warning

    This work discusses the fair warning system and prevention of electrical accidents through communication using material safety data sheets (MSDSs) and labeling in familiar formats adapted from training for chemical safety. Most employees work on, near or with electricity everyday, so occupational safety and health administration training awareness is required. Electrical hazard characterization remains a challenge to advancing mitigation based on regulations, design, engineering, procedures, task planning and personal protection. The toxicity of electricity is described using terms familiar from MSDS formats common to hazardous materials notices, including, for electricity, the threshold limit, permissible exposure limit, short-term exposure limit, lethal dose, flash point, and explosiveness. Hazard control is similarly addressed, with special attention to skin, respiratory, and organ system effects. A labeling strategy can be used to warn people about the hazards of electricity when working on, near, or with power frequency electrical energy.

  • Securing and preserving the scene of an electrical accident

    One of the intended purposes of forensics engineering is to help establish what happened (accident scene reconstruction) and to identify the failure mode. This is done by carefully documenting the conditions at an accident scene and recognizing all relevant evidence. The ability to secure the scene, recognize and properly collect physical evidence is critical to the process. Evidence that is fragile or not readily visible may be destroyed or lost if not secured and collected immediately. In addition the evidence may be subject to future litigation. For these reasons, it is necessary to establish procedures for how to secure the scene of an electrical accident to preserve the evidence.

  • Analysis of current density in the carpal tunnel region during an electrical accident by way of the finite element method

    Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) has been diagnosed in as many as 10% of the hand- involved electrical contacts studied by the authors. Typically a CTS diagnosis is indicative of median nerve compression. Such would not be consistent with the known apparatus of electrical injury. Using the finite element method, current density has been evaluated in the carpal tunnel region during an electrical contact. The results indicate that while the majority of current does not transverse the nerve tissue, the current density is significantly elevated in the nerves as they traverse the carpal tunnel region. In certain circumstances, the localized current elevation could cause nerve damage which would masquerade as CTS when diagnostically tested.

  • The Quest for Global Safety

    The authors present a systematic study on the factors that have influence on the establishment of the safety conditions ensuring the rise of Global Earthing Systems. Starting from the definition of Global Earthing System given by CENELEC Document HD 637 SI and from the results of the studies done on the last years on the interconnected earthing systems inside MV networks, the paper proposes some directions of deepening on the topic of Global Safety. Some of the themes whom the paper deals with are: the correct definition of proximity, interconnection and quasi-equipotentiality of the earth electrodes belonging to a Global Earthing System; the influence of the presence of HV/MV stations on hazardous voltages and on the permissible voltage limits; the variability of the hazardous conditions for persons with the different kinds of fault that can occur inside the interconnected system; the effect on safety of the interconnection of HV, MV and LV earthing systems. The proposed study has the aim of throwing light on some aspects of an argument on which nowadays exist many heterogeneous studies but not still a normative clarity.

  • Occupational electrical injuries in the US, 2003–2009

    As part of its ongoing effort to promote electrical safety in the workplace, the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) has undertaken to collect and analyze objective data on occupational electrical injuries, providing industry decision-makers with information to help them better allocate their safety resources to achieve maximum impact on employee electrical safety. This paper presents information on selected U.S. occupational electrical injuries between 2003 and 2009. These data include the total number of electrical injuries and fatalities, the industries and occupations in which they occurred, and the rates of electrical injury and fatality for selected industries. Although the data indicate that progress continues to be made in reducing the overall number of electrical injuries, there is more work yet to be done. Approximately 2,788 employees, their families, and their co-workers were affected by costly on-the-job electrical injuries and fatalities in 2009 alone. ESFI urges industry leaders to utilize the information presented in this paper to take steps to address the issues and trends identified by the study. Safety awareness, education, and training initiatives are keys to reducing electrical accidents. Leaders in all industries have a responsibility to foster a work environment where electrical safety is a top priority.
