Managing Health and Safety Risks (No. 36): Electrical work on site

All electrical work is potentially dangerous. In addition to the usual risks inherent with any electrical supply, site work can be particularly dangerous due to the risk of underground cables being cut or overhead wires being touched. The evolving nature of construction sites generates considerable uncertainty. Structural engineers will not be involved in power circuit design, but they should be aware of the inherent dangers on sites, particularly when planning alterations.
