LATENT SIDE-EFFECTS OF ELECTRICAL SAFETY INTERVENTIONS AMONG T&D LINE WORKERS
The construction industry is one of the dynamic risky environments that contains many potential hazards causing injuries to workers. This is especially true in the electrical sector, where T&D line workers perform tasks on high elevations, close to high-voltage energized lines. Despite increased safety interventions to curb the number of injuries occurring in the electrical construction industry, this sector still experiences one of the highest fatality rates.
ELECTRI International awarded an Early Career Award to Sogand Hasanzadeh of Purdue University to study the latent side-effects of electrical safety interventions among T&D line workers.
