Electrical Fatality Rates in Japan, 2002-2011: New Preventive Measures for Fatal Electrical Accidents
The statistical results of the causes, body contact points, and company sizes for the workplace are reported for fatal electrical accidents from 2002 to 2011 in Japan in this article. The results show that 81percent of all fatal accidents by electrical shock occur when the company size is fewer than fifty employees. The assignment of a security supervisor isn't obligatory for a corporation of this size. Contact between a hand or tool and a charged object accounts for 58% of all fatal accidents. Most fatal accidents are caused when a hand contacts the low- or high-voltage phase of a live wire. A total of seven,569 employees died from electrical shock accidents between 1959 and 2011 in Japan. The data show that wearing metal necklaces and other metal accessories will increase the potential for accidents. Therefore, an in depth analysis was performed to stop such accidents. Knowledge about these fatal accidents is needed to develop numerous protecting devices and safety regulations and acts. The results of this study will be helpful in considering new preventive measures for electrical shock.
