How can Exponent help identify workplace hazards and mitigate risks involving electric shock and electrocutions? 

Accidents involving shock and electrocution are often attributed to unlicensed work on energized electrical systems, lack of worker safety training, and/or substandard lock-out/tag-out, equipment failure, or improper labeling of components. Exponent's multidisciplinary teams of electrical engineers and safety consultants are experienced and licensed to consult in a variety of electrical safety areas.
