Every year, across the country, there are approximately 4,000 workplace injuries that involve electrocution. Many of these injuries can be fatal.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has put standards in place to reduce the risk of electrical shock, electrocution and fires.
A woman who has uterine fibroids will usually visit a doctor to discuss what treatment options are available. In some cases, removing the fibroids is necessary.
