NFPA Launches Video Campaign to Support Worker Safety

NFPA Launches Video Campaign to Support Worker Safety

The Faces of Fire/Electrical Campaign has, so far, featured interviews with two real electrical utility workers who were injured on the job.

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) partnered with the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors to produce a series of videos that highlight survivors of electrical incidents.

The first two videos in the Faces of Fire/Electrical were released on September 28, and a new video is expected to premiere in the coming weeks. These videos, told from the perspective of workers who experienced the damage that electrical or fire mishaps at work can cause, are intended to emphasize the need for workplace safety and education measures.

“Exposure to electricity poses a real injury risk to workers and the public,” said Lorraine Carli, NFPA’s vice president of Outreach and Advocacy. “Many people are not aware of electrical dangers and yet each year people are injured or killed from these hazards. The Faces of Fire/Electrical campaign helps better educate people about the true dangers of electricity and ways to prevent related tragedies from happening.”
