Abstract

"The use of electric wires in mines for power purposes is dangerous to human life. Deaths occur every year from electric shocks, and in most cases these accidents could have been prevented if some precaution had been taken by the victims, or if some care had been taken to protect them from coming in contact with live wires. Most workingmen accustomed to working around electric wires become careless and a lack of knowledge of the danger involved gives rise to the many accidents that occur each year...The object of this investigation is to determine just what resistance the human body would offer to an electric current under all the conditions met with in mines"--page 1 -2.
