Nearly 30 million U.S. workers are exposed to hazardous noise every year. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that more than 125,000 workers have suffered significant or permanent hearing loss since 2004. As a result, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has developed some strict regulations for occupational noise levels and exposures.


LEED v4, the latest version of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system, reflects an ultimate goal by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC): make a LEED-certified building forever green. A theme of “trust but verify” emerges as you look at the changes in LEED v4. You’ll see an emphasis on incorporating energy metering, measurement and verification, and ongoing commissioning.


In recent years, thousands of occupational fatalities and injuries have occurred as a result of electrical contact. Many of these accidents happen when workers do not use the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) for the job or they use it improperly. The hands are one of the most critical body parts that need to be protected when working on or near energized equipment.


Wiremen and linemen face more than twice the mortality rate of police officers or firefighters. Due to being in a confined position, many deaths and injuries occur while workers are on top of utility poles and in elevated bucket trucks. Therefore, in case a fellow wireman or lineman is injured, it is critical to be well-versed in appropriate rescue techniques.


Nearly 40 percent of all occupational deaths occur as a result of transportation-related incidents. A majority of them occur in traffic work zones. Many are not road construction workers but rather tradespeople, including electrical workers, who must work in or near roadways. Residential contractors also may find it necessary to divert traffic on occasion. Don’t overlook work zone safety, even as a rare or secondary component of completing work.

When we last left the U.S. solar-power industry, it was staring at a fiscal cliff. In “Clouds Ahead for Solar” (ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR, December 2015), we reported on the possible expiration of two important tax credits at the end of 2016 and how this could mean the loss of thousands of solar-related jobs and billions of dollars of related investment. Then, just as in an old-fashioned serial, our hero was pulled from the brink.


Lightning is the biggest cause of damage and destruction of electrical and electronic equipment in industrial facilities, commercial buildings and homes, as stated in the 2008 report by the U.S. National Lightning Safety Institute. Fires started by lightning occur mostly in the late afternoon and early evening in the summer months, and these fires cause an average of nine civilian deaths, 53 civilian injuries, and $451…

You are probably thinking this is yet another lecture about electrical safety. While focusing each May on safety is important, we should care about it every day. Unfortunately, preventable injuries and fatalities often occur when people fail to practice electrical safety.


According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 25 people are killed and many others are injured each year in accidents involving aerial lifts. This includes scissor lifts and boom-supported lifts, such as bucket trucks and cherry pickers. This equipment is indispensable to electricians, linemen and wiremen, but it is important to be aware of the hazards associated with them.
