Electrical injuries happen every day in homes and workplaces. Not only may these injuries cause physical damage and disability, they may also cause mental disorders. The aim of this study was to investigate if persons with an electrical injury suffer from mental disorders in the following years.
Exposure to electrical current may cause injury with both mental and physiological consequences. This may lead to increased contacts with general practitioners (GP) and the injured person may develop reduced ability to work.
Rapportens formål er at bidrage til øget viden om el-ulykker og helbredsmæssige senfølger efter el-ulykker. Den er udarbejdet i forlængelse af Dansk El-forbunds kampagne ”Nul spænding” i 2005.
