FAR Incident Registry Program The FAR Project for Electrical Incidents is designed to collect data for use in better understanding how injuries from the release of energy might be prevented when work is being done near electrical or stored energy sources. The project was piloted in 1997 when Dr. Mary Capelli-Schellpfeffer was a faculty member of the University of Chicago Electrical Trauma Research Program.
Expanded in 1998 to encourage nationwide participation, the project completed its first annual survey on October 1, 1999. Data analysis is ongoing in 2000 as the project is applying for external funding.

Electrical Safety Workshop The ESW from IEEE's PCIC group is my favorite workshop. Most of the PPT slides are available online for this recent conference. This is one of the most useful conferences I have attended. Some of the downloads are longer but well worth it.
N.A.I.L. for P.E.T. (National Association of Independent Labs for Protective Equipment Testing) This is the best list of test labs and good suppliers/manufacturers of rubber insulated gloves. Just choose an accredited lab near you but compare prices since some vary widely. Gloves are vital PPE for electric shock and finding voltage rated gloves on the internet and especially the test labs is very difficult so I provide this link as a service.
Powerlineman.com Powerlineman.com a website dedicated to lineman safety and even has a chat room for line technicians.
ISSA (International Social Security Association ISSA guidelines are the most comprehensive electrical safety documents in the EU. The ISSA is located in Germany but has international representation. I sat on the Guideline for the selection of personal protective clothing when exposed to the thermal effects of an electric arc which is free from ISSA.
