Engineers, electricians, and other workers who directly deal with electricity are at a great risk of suffering from a life-threatening electric shock. Although rare, life-threatening electric shocks occur when the body is exposed to the path of a strong electric current. Life-threatening symptoms from electric shock include muscle pain, contractions, severe burns, seizures, and unconsciousness. In these cases, call 911 immediately.
Even if you or one of your coworkers seem to have no injuries or just minor injuries, the victim should still visit the doctor to check for internal injuries.
