Dr. Tiffani Fordyce, Ms. Megan Leonhard, Dr. Heather Watson, and Dr. Gabor Mezei recently published, "An Analysis of Fatal and Non-fatal Injuries and Injury Severity Factors Among Electric Power Industry Workers." The article was published in the American Journal of Industrial Medicine.
The electric power industry represents a unique subset of the U.S. workforce. The authors aimed to evaluate the relationships between occupational category, nature of injury, and injury severity among electric power industry workers.
