Electrocution can happen anywhere there are subpar electrical products, negligent installation and maintenance of electrical infrastructure, or downed power lines, including the home, the workplace, and any other location.
People are more at risk of electrocution at home and at work because that is where they spend most of their time and are exposed the most. Appliances like toasters can cause electric shock in the home, but wiring poses a greater risk.
