The unique electrical hazards that are found in a high-energy research laboratory, such as those studying fusion energy, high-power lasers, or particle accelerators, are described. Hazards due to high voltages, high currents, or large amounts of stored energy-such as chemical, mechanical, inductive, or capacitive-are discussed. Hazards associated with grounding, static electric charges and electromagnetic fields are also briefly considered. Secondary hazards, i.e., those hazards other than shock that result from or are present in conjunction with the use of electrical energy, are not covered in detail but are simply listed along with how each might be produced in a high-energy laboratory. Issues related to training, engineering controls, and administrative controls used in controlling electrical hazards in the laboratory are considered
