I just read that about one thousand people per year are electrocuted. This must be worldwide as I thought U.S. totals were more like 300. Does anyone know the stats and what percentage are electrical workers?
Here is the site I read the 1,000 figure at:http://www.1uphealth.com/health/electrical_injury_info.html

Now that I check the site again it says 1,000 in the U.S. I think this is wrong, more like 300 from what I have read.
