All of the injuries and fatalities were prior to 1990. Hopefully we are all a lot safer in 2020, Well,at least electrically.

a fellow apprentice lost his life in 2007 or so. I did not know him well, but we were in classes together.

He died from an arc flash when doing some unknown work in a live meter socket in a very small electrical room.
