Workplace electrocutions account for over 400 deaths each year, and are the fourth leading cause of death in the construction industry.
Electronics are part of our everyday lives, in simple tasks that we rely on for food, comfort, cleanliness, and convenience.

A frayed cord, poor wiring, sparks, and a wide variety of other issues can arise in defective appliances and lead to disastrous results.
