Workplace Death – Tim’s Story

Each year, around four people die in electrical incidents and more than 3000 dangerous electrical events and serious electrical incidents are reported to the Electrical Safety Office.

This film highlights the emotional struggles and wider impacts on family and friends of Tim Martin, who died at the age of 17 after he received an electric shock at work.

Injuries and fatalities in the electrical industry are not restricted to touching live electrical parts, but also coming too close to electricity, falling from heights and working in confined spaces. A momentary lapse of attention can result in the severest of injuries or even death.
