Hi everyone,
I have recently been doing further research in to my maternal grandfather. His occupation was Electric tram driver (they stipulate electric becouse it was about the time of changeover from horse drawn and was apparantly considered more prestigious). My question is this, whilst at work he was electocuted, resulting in serious injury. If this were to happen today, there would be health and safety issues and forms and tribunal etc, but what about then, in the early part of the 20th century. Would this incident have been investigated and recorded? Does anyone know where such records, if they exist could be found?
Thanks for taking the trouble to read this, hope someone has a few ideas,
best wishes
