OSHA announces new rules affecting electrical lineworkers

Minnesota residents might take interest in new safety rules pertaining to electrical workers whose job involves climbing towers, poles and power lines. Whereas these workers had been heretofore unaffected by federal laws mandating the use of harnesses and other safety equipment for people who work at height, the new rules announced by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration will effectively force electrical lineworkers to conform to the standard safety requirements for climbing-related jobs.

Dangerous industries and rate of pay

The type of job a person has in Minnesota and across the country can increase their risk of being injured or even dying on the job. The National Safety Council calculates the risk of death from all types of calamities, such as getting struck by lightning at 1 in 136,011 to death from cancer or heart disease at 1 in 7 while other risks fall somewhere in between.
