||This article is an assessment of the electrocutions that occurred between 1992 and 1996 to workers in the electrical utility sector in Greece. Data concerning the occupational characteristics of the injured person, the time (day of the week, time of the day) at which the accident occurred and the consequences are presented and discussed. A method for calculating the accident frequency rate per 1,000 workers, with emphasis on fatal accidents, is proposed. Also, an information system for accidents is proposed that would be capable of calculating the frequency and severity rates per workplace, per group, and per occupational category of the workers. It would also classify workers according to the occupational risks they face.
