The analysis of low-voltage consumer accidents in Israel in the years 1960 to 1969 is summarized. Results involving the matrix of factors that caused the accident, breakdown according to contact with energized (voltage-carrying) metalware, and the involvement of faulty earthing are presented. The conventional protective method (earthing to metallic water mains) is evaluated and, in light of the high percentage of accidents due to live conductors, the introduction of ground-fault interrupters is advocated.
